Amrix and Breastfeeding
No human studies have been conducted on Amrix (cyclobenzaprine ER) and breastfeeding, so it is not known whether the medication passes through breast milk. If it does, it has the potential to cause side effects in the nursing infant. Due to these potential risks, be sure to talk to your healthcare provider about taking Amrix and breastfeeding in your particular situation.
It is not known if Amrix® (cyclobenzaprine ER) passes through breast milk in humans. If it does pass through breast milk, it has the potential to cause problems in a breastfeeding infant. If you are breastfeeding, you should talk with your healthcare provider about taking Amrix. In many cases, the possible risks may outweigh any benefits from taking the drug.
Amrix has not been studied in any pregnant women, so it is not possible to know for sure if it passes through breast milk. However, based on the chemical structure of cyclobenzaprine (the active ingredient in Amrix), it is likely to pass through breast milk. Amrix would be likely to cause side effects, such as drowsiness, in a breastfed infant. Generally, most healthcare providers do not recommend Amrix for breastfeeding women, since the risks are largely unknown at this time.
You should talk with your healthcare provider about Amrix 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, you and your healthcare provider can make a shared decision about Amrix and breastfeeding that is right for you.
