My doctor said that azithromycin was safe, but I've can't find it in the approved list at kellymom and other web sites are not clear about the recommendation.
Is it safe to take a Z pack while breastfeeding?

Azithromycin Breastfeeding Warnings
Azithromycin is excreted into human milk. The manufacturer recommends that caution be used when administering azithromycin to nursing women.
In one lactating woman receiving azithromycin 500 mg/day, azithromycin milk concentration measured 1.3 and 2.8 mcg/mL 1 hour after the first dose and 30 hours after the third dose, respectively.
