Is it safe to take dilt-cd (diltiazem) while pregnant or breastfeeding?

2 doctors agree

In brief: Yes

While i don't feel comfortable saying medications are "safe" during breastfeeding ("compatible" is better), based on limited data, the amounts of Diltiazem ingested by the infant are small and would not be expected to cause any adverse effects in breastfed infants.
For any questions on medications and breastfeeding, lactmed is a great resource.
