Summary of Use during Lactation

The excretion of pasireotide into breastmilk has not been studied. However, because it has a high molecular weight of 1047 daltons it is likely to be poorly excreted into breastmilk and it is a peptide that is likely digested in the infant's gastrointestinal tract. It is unlikely to reach the clinically important levels in infant serum. However, the manufacturer states that nursing mothers should not use pasireotide.
