Summary of Use during Lactation

No information is available on the use of chloroprocaine during breastfeeding. Based on the low excretion of other local anesthetics into breastmilk and the extremely short half-life of chloroprocaine, it is unlikely to adversely affect the breastfed infant. However, an alternate drug may be preferred, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant.
