Question

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

Answer by DrLact: About Oxacillin usage in lactation

Limited information indicates that oxacillin produces low levels in milk that are not expected to cause adverse effects in breastfed infants. Occasionally disruption of the infant's gastrointestinal flora, resulting in diarrhea or thrush have been reported with penicillins, but these effects have not been adequately evaluated. Oxacillin is acceptable in nursing mothers.
