Want to breastfeed but need some help? Mumsnet's Breastfeeding pages are crammed with honest advice.
I've been prescribed metronidazole on the basis of test results so haven't had a chance to mention to the doctor that I'm breastfeeding. Does anyone know whether it's safe to take?
look heresounds like metronidazole is OK, but might be better to use an alternative; it depends why you have been prescribed it.
metronidazole is defo safe when b/f ing. most drugs that can be given to paeds can be given to b/fing mums...
I was prescribed it after the birth of my first child, and they knew I was breastfeeding and said it was fine.
I've had it while I was breastfeeding. Only problem was it gave me the trots and gave DD the trots too. Not nice, but better than the horrible infection I had. Hope you feel better soon.
