Zoledronic Acid

Drug Levels and Effects:




Summary of Use during Lactation:


Because no information is available on the use of zoledronic acid during breastfeeding, an alternate drug may be preferred, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant. However, absorption of zoledronic acid by a breastfed infant is unlikely.


Drug Levels:


Zoledronic acid has a serum half-life of about 1.7 hours and is poorly absorbed orally, so absorption of zoledronic acid by a breastfed infant is unlikely.
