Peramivir Levels and Effects while Breastfeeding

Summary of Use during Lactation

Because peramivir is poorly absorbed orally, it is not likely to reach the bloodstream of the infant in clinically important amounts. However, because no information is available on the use of peramivir breastfeeding, an alternate drug may be preferred, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant.
