Diazepam in Lactating Mothers

Did you know that…..

Diazepam is excreted in breast milk and causes lethargy, drowsiness, and loss of weight in breastfed infants ?

Others Benzodiazepines, Barbiturates, Antipsychotics, Lithium and Tricyclic Antidepressants drugs pass also into the breast milk. Those drugs must be avoided by nursing mothers because they are considered hazardous to the infant.
