I am a breastfeeding mother and i want to know if it is safe to use Cefditoren? Is Cefditoren safe for nursing mother and child? Does Cefditoren extracts into breast milk? Does Cefditoren has any long term or short term side effects on infants? Can Cefditoren influence milk supply or can Cefditoren decrease milk supply in lactating mothers?
Answer by DrLact: About Cefditoren usage in lactation
Although no information is available on the use of cefditoren during breastfeeding, cephalosporins are generally not be 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 cephalosporins, but these effects have not been adequately evaluated. Cefditoren is acceptable in nursing mothers.
