I know there are at least a few antibiotics that they suggest breastfeeding mothers avoid. There are lots that are safe though.

If you have a prescription ask the pharmacist if it's safe while nursing. Pharmacists often know more about drugs than doctors.

If you still have to go to the doctor to a get a prescription make sure the doctor knows that you are nursing.

Organizations like www.motherisk.org also have lots of current information about drugs for pregnant and nursing mothers.
