I"m breastfeeding, but have been pumping and dumping since I took the tablet on Wednesday. I was wondering when it would be safe to resume breastfeeding.
I realize this answer is a bit late but fluconazole can be in your system for up to 275 hours. (It has an elimination half life of between 20 to 50 hours, and it takes approximately 5.5 x elimination half life's for the medicine to be out of your system. Was your doctor aware that you were breastfeeding. Next time please let them know and perhaps ask how soon after your dose you can start breastfeeding again.
