Telavancin Levels and Effects while Breastfeeding

Summary of Use during Lactation

Telavancin is 93% plasma protein bound and is poorly absorbed orally, so it is not likely to reach the bloodstream of the infant or cause any adverse effects in breastfed infants. If telavancin is required by the mother, it is not a reason to discontinue breastfeeding. Monitor the infant for possible effects on the gastrointestinal tract, such as diarrhea, vomiting, and candidiasis (e.g., thrush, diaper rash).
