Summary of Use during Lactation

Ferumoxsil is not approved for marketing in the United States by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. No information is available on the clinical use of ferumoxsil during breastfeeding. If ferumoxsil is required by the mother, it is not a reason to discontinue breastfeeding.[1] However, since there is no published experience with ferumoxsil during breastfeeding, other agents may be preferred, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant.
