Nasarel and Breastfeeding
Before taking Nasarel, breastfeeding women should talk to their healthcare providers about the possible risks of using the drug while nursing. It is not known whether Nasarel passes through breast milk. However, since it is a nasal spray and, therefore, reaches the bloodstream in low levels, problems are not likely to occur with Nasarel. Breastfeeding women should watch for side effects in their nursing child.
Currently, it is not known whether Nasarel™ (flunisolide nasal solution) passes through breast milk in humans. However, it is unlikely that the drug will cause problems. To be safe, if you are breastfeeding a child, you should talk with your healthcare provider about taking Nasarel.
Nasarel is a steroid nasal spray used to treat nasal allergies in adults and children as young as six years old. Studies have shown that other steroids pass through breast milk, but it is not known whether flunisolide (the active ingredient in Nasarel) also passes through breast milk in humans. However, inhaled steroids (such as Nasarel) are often considered to be compatible with breastfeeding, which means that they are usually unlikely to cause any problems. If your healthcare provider recommends taking Nasarel while breastfeeding, be sure to watch for any side effects in your child.
You should talk with your healthcare provider about Nasarel and breastfeeding. Each woman's situation is different, and you and your healthcare provider understand your situation best. After considering what you want and expect, as well as your current health situation, the two of you can make a shared decision about Nasarel and breastfeeding that is right for you.
