Breastfeeding: There is no problem with using panadol (acetaminophen). You can continue to breastfeed as always.

You don't: You don't have to wait for this medication to be out of your system before breastfeeding, you're fine to breastfeed while taking this medication.

A 44-year-old member asked:

I am 21 weeks pregnant and have tender breasts. Today I noticed a small lump in my right breast-should I be worried?

See your doctor: There are many changes in the breasts during pregnancy. Breast tenderness is very common. However, if you have a new breast mass, i would see your doctor within a week. Be careful not to check the lump too often before you see your doctor as breast/nipple stimulation in pregnancy can cause contractions.

No: The answer is not a clear cut yes/no. The fda has assigned a category c rating which means there were some negative effects when given to animals at extremely high doses but no clear answer in humans. You should talk to your ob, eye doctor and pediatrician.

Is isoniazid-rifampin safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding?

Dr. R. Wayne Inzer
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
No: Both drugs are category c, which means there are no direct human harm shown, but animal studies show adverse effects on the fetus. The benefits may outweigh the risks, under certain circumstances, this should be discussed with your doctor. Rifampin is considered safe with breast feeding while Isoniazid is not and may decrease flow and quality of milk.

Is it safe to take rabies immune globulin while pregnant or breastfeeding?

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Yes, IgG is safe: Immune globulin (igg) is concentrated antibodies, and helps protect against a variety of infections. It is safe for pregnant women, breastfeeding moms, and infants. Of course, there could be a rare allergic reaction on a rare occassion. Because IgG is purified from other people's blood plasma, there is also a very, very rare chance that something contagious could be transmitted in the injection.
