Safe Medications While Breastfeeding
If youíre taking medications while breastfeeding here are ways to check if a drug is safe to take.
First, drugs that are commonly prescribed for infants are normally safe.
Many injected drugs are not absorbed from the stomach or intestines, making them safe to take while breastfeeding.
Normally, medications applied to the skin, inhaled through the nose, or applied to the eyes are safe during breastfeeding.
Remember - always check with your doctor before changing your medication and make sure to review the benefits and risks before making any decisions.
