Abstract This case describes the transfer of the antipsychotic drug amisulpride into milk and the estimation of infant exposure via breastfeeding. The dyad investigated was a 28-year-old lactating woman and her 13-month-old daughter. The woman had been taking 400 mg of amisulpride daily for 9 days and provided eight milk samples and one blood sample over a 24-hour dose interval. Amisulpride concentrations in these samples were measured by high-performance liquid chromatography, and infant dose was calculated by standard methods. The infant's health and progress were evaluated by a neonatal pediatrician. Transfer of amisulpride into milk was high, with a milk:plasma distribution ratio of 19.5 (5,188 μg/L in milk and 266 μg/L in plasma). The average amisulpride concentration in milk was 3,562 μg/L, which, when multiplied by an average milk intake of 0.15 L/kg/day, gave an absolute infant dose of 534 μg/kg/day. The relative infant dose was 10.7% of the maternal weight-adjusted dose (5,000 μg/kg/day), which is slightly above the usual 10% safety recommendation. The infant was in good health with an appropriate Denver development score for her age. She showed no acute drug-related adverse effects. Given that the infant had already benefited from 13 months of breastfeeding, that amisulpride has potential adverse effects, and that its relative infant dose was 10.7%, we recommended cessation of breastfeeding in the near-term.
