Summary of Use during Lactation

No information is available on the clinical use of hexaminolevulinate during breastfeeding. After instillation into the bladder, only about 7% of a dose is absorbed into the maternal bloodstream, so the amount of drug excreted into milk is expected to be minimal. Until more data become available, hexaminolevulinate should be used with caution during breastfeeding, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant.
