Acetohydroxamic acid Breastfeeding Warnings

There are no data on the excretion of acetohydroxamic acid into human milk. Because many drugs are excreted into human milk, and because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in nursing infants from acetohydroxamic acid, a decision should be made to discontinue nursing or the drug, taking into account the significance of the drug to the mother's well being.
