Loracarbef Breastfeeding Warnings

There are no data on the excretion of loracarbef into human milk. Other cephalosporins are excreted into human milk in small amounts; however, adverse effects in the nursing infant are unlikely. Other beta-lactam antibiotics have been classified as compatible with breast-feeding by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
