There are no data on the excretion of lisinopril into human milk. The manufacturer recommends that due to the potential for serious adverse reactions in nursing infants, a decision should be made to discontinue nursing or discontinue the drug, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother.

No reports describing the use of lisinopril during human lactation have been located. The drug is excreted in the milk of lactating rats (1). The molecular weight (about 442) is low enough that excretion into breast milk should be expected. Two similar agents are present in milk in low concentrations and are classified by the American Academy of Pediatrics as compatible with breast feeding (see Captopril and Enalapril).
