Medication Use While Breastfeeding – More Data Now Online
Our developers and clinical staff have been working busily behind the scenes to add yet more detailed information in our continued effort to increase awareness of potential medication problems.
This latest update includes comprehensive information relating to medicine use while breastfeeding (lactating). It includes drug levels and possible effects on the lactating mother and breastfed infant. In some instances, alternate drugs are suggested.
Many medications are known to be safe to use while breastfeeding. However, most drugs can pass into (enter the) breast milk and some can affect the supply of milk. Any mother with questions about how a drug might affect their breast milk or their breastfed infant (the baby) should check out this comprehensive resource.
