Summary of Use during Lactation

No published information is available on the use of eptifibatide during breastfeeding. Because eptifibatide is a peptide, absorption by the infant is unlikely because it is probably destroyed in the infant's gastrointestinal tract. Until more data become available, eptifibatide should be used with caution during breastfeeding, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant. If it is used by a nursing mother, monitor the infant for bruising and bleeding.
