Can atypical antipsychotic agents be used safely in patients who are breastfeeding?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Olanzapine is considered compatible with breastfeeding due to both low concentrations in breast milk and lack of reported adverse effects. Clozapine should be avoided due to greater reported adverse effects in exposed infants. Aripiprazole, risperidone, quetiapine, and ziprasidone should be used with caution due to the lack of data concerning safety in this setting. (SOR: C, based on case series and expert opinion.)
