Summary of Use during Lactation

Temsirolimus is a prodrug of sirolimus. Because no information is available on the use of temsirolimus or sirolimus during breastfeeding, an alternate drug may be preferred, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant. The manufacturer recommends that breastfeeding be discontinued during temsirolimus therapy and for 3 weeks following the last dose.
