Is Apomorphine-Hydrochloride compatible with breastfeeding? Do we have alternatives for Apomorphine-Hydrochloride?


December 1, 2004 (Low Risk)

Unlikely to be an indication for breastfeeding mothers.
Its short half-life span would permit to take it just after having breastfed and then wait for 2 or 3 hours before next breastfeeding is offered. Likely side effects are nausea and vomiting.


We do not have alternatives for Apomorphine-Hydrochloride.
