Colistimethate and breast feeding
Limited data indicate that colistin is minimally excreted into breastmilk following intramuscular administration of colistimethate. Because colistin is poorly absorbed orally, it is unlikely to be absorbed in appreciable amounts by the infant or adversely affect the breastfed infant. However, no studies have evaluated serum levels or adverse effects in breastfed infants whose mothers were receiving colistimethate. Breastfeeding is acceptable with the use of inhaled colistin or colistimethate.
