I am a breastfeeding mother and i want to know if it is safe to use Tedizolid? Is Tedizolid safe for nursing mother and child? Does Tedizolid extracts into breast milk? Does Tedizolid has any long term or short term side effects on infants? Can Tedizolid influence milk supply or can Tedizolid decrease milk supply in lactating mothers?
If tedizolid is required by the mother, it is not a reason to discontinue breastfeeding. Monitor the infant for possible effects on the gastrointestinal tract, such as diarrhea, vomiting, and candidiasis (e.g., thrush, diaper rash). However, because there is no published experience with tedizolid during breastfeeding, an alternate drug may be preferred, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant.
