Drug Levels and Effects

Summary of Use during Lactation

No information is available on the use of lemborexant during breastfeeding. Because it is about 94% bound to plasma proteins, amounts in milk are likely to be small. If lemborexant is required by the mother, it is not a reason to discontinue breastfeeding. However, until more data become available, an alternate drug may be preferred, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant.
