If you mean does it increase or reduce production ... then I'm not too sure.
In terms of if it is advisable during breastfeeding:
Ciprofloxacin is excreted into human milk. Concentrations found in breast milk have ranged from 85% (at 24 hours post dose) to 214% (at 4 hours post dose) of maternal serum concentration. In one case report, a 2-month-old girl developed perforated pseudomembranous colitis following ingestion of ciprofloxacin via the mother's milk and subsequently required a bowel resection. In addition, quinolone-induced cartilage erosion and arthropathies that have been observed in juvenile animals render some concern over its possible toxic effects on the developing joints of nursing infants. Ciprofloxacin is considered compatible with breast-feeding by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Because of the potential for serious adverse effects in nursing infants, a decision should be made to discontinue nursing or discontinue administration of ciprofloxacin, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother.
