Question

I am a breastfeeding mother and i want to know if it is safe to use Plazomicin? Is Plazomicin safe for nursing mother and child? Does Plazomicin extracts into breast milk? Does Plazomicin has any long term or short term side effects on infants? Can Plazomicin influence milk supply or can Plazomicin decrease milk supply in lactating mothers?

Answer by DrLact: About Plazomicin usage in lactation

Plazomycin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic similar to gentamicin and amikacin. No information is available on the use of plazomycin during breastfeeding. However, based on the excretion of other aminoglycoside antibiotics, amounts in milk are expected to be low. Monitor the infant for possible effects on the gastrointestinal flora, such as diarrhea, candidiasis (e.g., thrush, diaper rash) or rarely, blood in the stool indicating possible antibiotic-associated colitis.
