Question

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

Answer by DrLact: About Piperacillin and Tazobactam usage in lactation

Limited information indicates that piperacillin produces low levels in milk that are not expected to cause adverse effects in breastfed infants. Tazobactam has not been studied in nursing mothers. 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.
