    Tolvaptan

    A mother of a 3 m.old is asking about the safety of tolvaptan (for her genetic renal polycystic syndrome) during breastfeeding.
    Do you have any data about it?
    thank you

    There's no data in breastfeeding mothers. This drug drastically increase sodium levels in plasma and therefore water content. I'd suggest it is too dangerous to use in a breastfeeding mother. While I would suggest milk level will be low, sodium retention in the infant could be significant.

    I'd suggest the risk is higher than the benefit of breastfeeding.
