Can it be administered to lactating women?

In Japan, tranexamic acid in the form of syrup is used, that is, it is administered to infants. Therefore, there is no problem regarding administration of the drug to lactating women. The concentration of the drug in milk is about 1/100 of that in blood. For example, when it is administered in a dose of 500 mg, its concentration in milk is about 0.06 μg/ml. If the milk consumption of a infant is 1 liter a day, the concentration is 60 μg at most. Because the daily dose of the drug for infants aged 1 and under is 75 to 200 mg, there is no problem.
