Summary of Use during Lactation

Although no published data exist on the use of umeclidinium during breastfeeding, it produces low systemic maternal serum levels and any drug in breastmilk are not likely to be absorbed by the infant. The risk to the breastfed infant of maternal umeclidinium inhalation is small. Combination products such as Anoro Ellipta are likely to be acceptable for similar reasons.
