  • 80mg Methotrexate and breastfeeding

    How long is safe to wait breastfeeding if given 80mg IM injection of Methotrexate, I am nursing my 2 yr old approximately 2 times daily mostly at night. I've received different information from providers. Thank you.

    Mir,

    We recommend to pump and dump for 4 days following a dose greater than 75mg.

      Ok thanks, any information regarding clothes that are exposed to the breastmilk during the tx and will be in contact to the nursing child after (ex. nursing bra), will washing it be sufficient or should it be discarded so child is not exposed to those clothes after tx.

        MIR:

        washing will be just fine.

        No risk.
