| ||º ||Safety of Commonly Used Drugs in Nursing Mothers|

To be safe, check with your child's doctor before taking any kind of medication, even over-the-counter drugs. The information in our chart was compiled by Philip Anderson, a pharmacist and the editor of LactMed, the U.S. National Library of Medicine's drugs and lactation database. The chart has been newly updated and is current as of March 2010.
