I am a breastfeeding mother and i want to know if it is safe to use Ceftizoxime? Is Ceftizoxime safe for nursing mother and child? Does Ceftizoxime extracts into breast milk? Does Ceftizoxime has any long term or short term side effects on infants? Can Ceftizoxime influence milk supply or can Ceftizoxime decrease milk supply in lactating mothers?
Limited information indicates that ceftizoxime 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 cephalosporins, but these effects have not been adequately evaluated. Ceftizoxime is acceptable in nursing mothers.
