Because of the potential for tumor growth, shown for Birodogyl in mouse and rat studies, a decision should be made whether to discontinue nursing or to discontinue the drug, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother as the drug can be secreted through breast milk.

Birodogyl active ingredients are Lamivudine, Zidovudine and nevirapine. In a study, Lamivudine and Zidovudine were found to be excreted in human milk and the manufacturer recommends that those taking this drug are not advised to breastfeed since this poses potential serious adverse reactions in nursing infants. HIV infected mothers should generally not breastfeed their infants but in countries in which no acceptable, feasible and safe replacement feeding is available, exclusive breastfeeding is warranted to reduce the risk of HIV transmission from mother to infant compared to mixed feeding.
