Is Cefixime Safe For Breastfeeding?
I just gave birth normally, given a sporetic drug 100, is it safe for my new born baby?
Thank you for the question.
The drug you mentioned has an active cefixime, which is a type of cephalosporin antibiotic. These antibiotics are able to inhibit bacterial proliferation, so that both in overcoming a variety of infections caused by bacteria, including ear infections, respiratory infections, urinary tract infections, skin infections, and so on.
Regarding its safety when used by breastfeeding mothers, this drug belongs to category B, which means that this drug has not been proven to have a negative impact on both the unborn baby and the breastfed babies in research conducted on animals, only, there is no further research in humans. Therefore, this drug may be consumed during breastfeeding, provided it is prescribed directly by a doctor, and for appropriate medical indications. The doctor who examines you, with his experience and competence, surely understands the best for his patient. When in doubt, consult with him a lot.
I hope this helps.
