Can Nursing Mothers Take Antibiotics?
Hello, my name is Marya. Want to ask breastfeeding mothers may not consume amoxsan? Will it have an impact on ASI? If possible, how many hours is the safe distance between drinking Amoxsan and breastfeeding? Thank you in advance.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
The product you mentioned is a branded drug with the active ingredient in the form of amoxicillin, which is an antibiotic that is generally used in diseases caused by bacterial infections, for example in infections of the respiratory tract, ears, teeth, digestive tract, and skin. The way it works is that it inhibits the formation of bacterial cell walls.
There is still limited scientific information regarding the use of amoxicillin during lactation, but the limited data reported that amoxicillin entered the milk content in low levels. Amoxicillin with low levels is not said to cause significant side effects in breastfed infants. There have been reports of side effects of diarrhea and skin rashes in breastfed infants, but this has not been adequately evaluated. So, its use during lactation is quite acceptable.
Regarding the technical use, unfortunately we cannot provide prescribing. Amoxicillin is a strong drug whose use requires prescription and supervision by a doctor who treats patients directly. Therefore, we recommend that you first consult with a doctor who treats you directly.
Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
