Etizolam is not approved for marketing in the United States by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Very little information is available on the passage of etizolam into milk. An alternate drug is preferred, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant. If etizolam is used, monitor the infant for sedation, poor feeding and poor weight gain.
