Summary of Use during Lactation

No information is available on the clinical use of bedaquiline during breastfeeding. Because bedaquiline is more than 99.9% bound to plasma proteins, exposure of the breastfed infant is likely to be low. However, the half-lives of the drug and its main metabolite are over 5 months, so until more safety data become available, bedaquiline should be avoided during breastfeeding.
