Methergine and lactation

Recommended Posts

Hi group;

our OB colleagues use Methergine (ergonovine) for treatment or prophylaxis of postpartum hemorrhage. The medication label from the manufacturer recommends to hold breast feeding up to 12 hours after last dose due to unpublished reported side effects in the babies

i did a literature search and found only one article published in Pubmed that covers that topic: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/27846760/

min this prospective study they found no side effects in breastfed babies 

Are there any other reference on this topic that you can share?

is this something that affects your newborn nursery practice in your hospital?

Thanks for any input
