I just finished taking 7 day course of Macrobid for an UTI. Does anybody know how long Macrobid stays in the system? I am breastfeeding my 7 month old & have been having to pump & dump while on the medication. I am curious to know if anyone knows how long Macrobid stays in your system and when it is safe to resume breastfeeding. Thanks ladies!

Thanks for the additional tip of mentioning bf to dr when requesting Rx-didn't think of that until after I had the RX. Thanks again for all your help!!

Thanks for the website. I didn't know that this site existed. This is awesome!!! Thanks so much!! The info that came with the Rx & the pharmacist both told me that I should NOT take macrobid while breastfeeding. Thanks again for the website. I will be sure to consult it in the future if ever in doubt again!!!




kellymom is great. sorry you were misinformed about macrobid and breastfeeding :(



it's unfortunate that docs & pharmacists aren't more knowledgable about bf



ETA: I always tell the doc I'm bf'ing and need a Rx that is compatible. If they don't already know then they should look it up or consult someone
