Is bumetanide safe to take if I'm pregnant or breastfeeding?
There have been no adequate studies on the effects of bumetanide on the fetus. Thus, the physician must carefully weigh the potential but unknown risks and benefits of bumetanide before prescribing it for pregnant women.
It is not known if bumetanide is excreted into breast milk. Thus, it should be used in women who are breastfeeding only if its potential benefits outweigh the unknown risks.
