Can I use Brovana if I am breastfeeding?

If you're breastfeeding, talk to your doctor before taking Brovana (arformoterol), a drug prescribed to relax and open the airways in people who have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a group of lung problems that includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Animal studies have found that Brovana can pass into breast milk, but doctors aren't sure whether the drug can pass into human milk and harm a nursing infant. You may need to wean your baby before starting treatment with Brovana, but you and your doctor together can determine the best strategy for you.
