Brovana and Breastfeeding

No research has been conducted on Brovana (arformoterol tartrate) and breastfeeding, so it is not known whether the medication passes through breast milk. Since the drug is only approved for treating COPD, which is very uncommon in women of reproductive age, it is unlikely that a breastfeeding woman would need to take Brovana. Breastfeeding women should talk to their healthcare providers before taking any medication.
