New Online Resource for Nursing Moms

LactMed: Drug and Lactation Database

There is a great new resource to help nursing moms: an online database of medications which lists drug behavior in human breast milk!

From the website: “A peer-reviewed and fully referenced database of drugs to which breastfeeding mothers may be exposed. Among the data included are maternal and infant levels of drugs, possible effects on breastfed infants and on lactation, and alternate drugs to consider.”

You can search anything from Tylenol to blood pressure medication, and more! Check it out at http://toxnet.nlm.nih.gov/cgi-bin/sis/htmlgen?LACT
