Can Nursing Mothers And Babies Take Worm Medication?
Can breastfeeding mothers and babies take worm medication?
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Worm medicine is known to be well tolerated by women who are breastfeeding. Based on research worm medicine regimens such as albendazole and mebendazole only a small amount is concentrated into breast milk and does not cause bad side effects for babies who are still breastfeeding. In other words the consumption of worm medicine is quite safe for nursing mothers and their babies. To get the right dose of worm medicine in your case you should do an examination with a doctor first.
