  • Vyvanse and cymbalta

    I’ve been prescribed 30Mg cymbalta and 40mg vyvanse. Is there any risk in this medication combination to my 8 month old baby. She is breastfed only besides some occasional solids. Thanks

    Katie:


    Duloxetine is a selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) similar in function to venlafaxine. It is indicated for major depressive disorders, and for diabetic peripheral neuropathic pain. New data suggest that the milk/plasma ratio is low, and the RID is low as well. The Relative infant dose is about 1.1% of the maternal dose, or less. This is too low to have clinical effects on an infant.

    Vyvanse is a prodrug of dextroamphetamine. We have several studies in breastfeeding mothers suggesting that about 1.8% - 6.2% of the maternal dose transfers to the infant. Thus far, we don't have any reported complications in an infant when the proper dose is administered. However, observer for Nervousness, insomnia, anorexia, hyperexcitability.
