The use of antibiotics, not only in nursing women, must be done with extreme caution. All types of antibiotics are not included in the class of over-the-counter drugs, so their use is only appropriate if carried out under the supervision of a doctor. Before giving any antibiotics, doctors need to evaluate first, whether there are signs of bacterial infection or similar microorganisms that respond well to antibiotics in patients. The type and location of infection, the severity of the disease, the history of the disease, and the general health condition of the patient should also be taken into consideration by doctors in determining the type and dosage of antibiotics that are appropriate to be given.
Cefadroxil is a class of cefalosporin that is good for eradicating bacteria that cause respiratory infections, urinary tract infections, and many other types of infections. The dosage of this drug may vary depending on the patient's age, body posture, indications for administration, and general health conditions of the patient.
Cefadroxil is not absolutely prohibited to give to nursing mothers. As long as there are proper medical indications, cefadroxyl may be given to nursing mothers, back again, provided that it is supervised directly by a doctor. With the right dose, very little of the drug content is secreted through breast milk, so that the potential to disrupt the health of breastfed babies is quite small. However, if given in excessive doses, it is prone to disruption of the balance of normal flora in the digestive tract. This can cause the baby to experience indigestion, such as diarrhea, rashes in the oral cavity, and so on. In addition, there can also be other side effects that are more dangerous, for example allergies, to shock (shock) that has the potential to be life threatening.
Therefore, it is wise to take antibiotics. Take antibiotics only if prescribed directly by your doctor, and consume according to the dosage recommended by your doctor.
Hope this helps ...
