I was prescribed doxycycline for 28 days 2x a day at 100 mg each one will i hurt my 2 week old baby if i still breastfeed her
Yes it may. Taken from drugs.com:
Tetracyclines appear in breast milk following oral administration. It is not known whether doxycycline is excreted in human milk following use of Atridox®. Because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in nursing infants from doxycycline, a decision should be made whether to discontinue nursing or to discontinue the drug, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother."
I would seek information from someone more qualified than I.
- Doxycycline Information for Consumers
- Doxycycline Information for Healthcare Professionals (includes dosage details)
- Side Effects of Doxycycline (detailed)
