I am 25 years old and have a 3 month old daughter and i am breastfeeding her.......I used to take asthalin rotocaps for my wheezing problem.........which i used to take in a rotohaler(2 years back).......
I havent got that wheezing problem in 2 years......
I am planning a trip to india in may and i am worried if i get my wheezing problem back........is it safe to take asthalin rotocaps as i am breastfeeding her..........
It is unknown if Asthalin Rotocaps (albuterol sulfate) is excreted in breast milk. Basically the safety of this during breast feeding has not been confirmed, thus caution is advised.
What is most important is that the potential benefit for you justifies the potential risks to your nursing infant. You must be breathing well, so you can continue to breastfeed your daughter.
Albuterol has a long track record of use in the treatment of asthma without harmful effects for the breast feeding infant. You should discuss any further concerns with your doctor, including the possibility of a different inhaled medicine for wheezing.
I hope that you will not need to use any asthma medicine in India.
