Can I take Treprostinil while breastfeeding?

One patient taking treprostinil breastfed her infant for one year without any complications. If treprostinil is required by the mother, it is not a reason to discontinue breastfeeding. However, until more data are available, treprostinil should only be used with careful monitoring during breastfeeding.
