    Lactation Clinic, I expect withholding breastfeeding for 24 hours after the last dose to have a good margin of safety.

    Dear Dr.Hale,

    As you kindly provided the half-life of Favipiravir as 2 hours, please suggest breastfeeding management for the case who receives Favipiravir as the treatment. How long the mothers can resume breastfeeding?
    Thank you so much.

    Lactation Clinic:

    We simply don't know much at all about this antiviral drug. Its not used in the USA. Has a 2 hour half life, and is well absorbed orally. It is Teratogenic during pregnancy.
    Since this damages DNA during synthesis and a lot of this is going on in a newborn, I'd worry about using this drug in a breastfed infant.
