Breast feeding

Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology

Should you advise patients to avoid Methotrexate whilst breast feeding?

(you can use the BNF to help you answer this question)

You need to refer to the summary of product characteristics: the full summary of product characteristics is not found in the BNF.

This information is not found in either the BNF or the summary of product characteristics, but can be found elsewhere.

For breast feeding: Appendix 5 in the back of the BNF.

See Methotrexate: you’re redirected to cytotoxic drugs and the advice is avoid.
