  • Drotaverine hydrochloride; Papaverine hydrochloride and Breastfeeding

    Hi. I'm trying to find information about the compatibility of few medications with breastfeeding. I've got Medication and mothers' Milk, 2010 but I couldn't find them in it. Medications are
    - NO SPA 40 mg tablets with active ingredient drotaverine hydrochloride;
    - Papaverine with active ingredient Papaverine hydrochloride 50 mg;
    - Spasmalgon with active ingredients Metamizole sodium 500 mg, fenpiverinium bromide 0.1 mg and pitofenone hydrochloride 5 mg.
    Could you help me please? Do you have any information about them?

    Mother had a terrible headache and she took spasmalgon. Now she is pumping. When can she continue her breastfeeding? Thank you for you answers

      It looks like about 12 hours is all she needs to wait. The fenpiverinium does not get into breastmilk much and the pitofenone is relatively non-toxic to babies.
