More Information About Amturnide and Breastfeeding
Hydrochlorothiazide passes through breast milk, although doses lower than 50 mg per day are not thought to cause any problems (this is higher than the highest strength of hydrochlorothiazide in Amturnide). Higher doses may suppress breast milk production.
No research has been done to see if the other two active ingredients in Amturnide pass through breast milk in humans. The manufacturer recommends against taking this medication while breastfeeding.
