Depends on meds: Usually the information from the pharmacist when you pick up the antibiotic prescription will indicate what you can and cannot take with your medication.

It looks like you're taking amoxicillin and metronidazole which should be 'fine' with milk. Paracetamol is also OK. ...Read more

Im breasfeeding mom, if i take maxpectra AM and singulair (montelukast) PM and didnt breastfeed all the day and didnt pump is it safe to breastfeed him at night?
Clariththromycin: may not be the best choice for your current infection. because it is excreted in breastmilk & can cause a baby to have diarrhea, rash & sleepiness. If you took 500 mg. of long-acting Clarithromycin,it would take about 45 hours for your body to eliminate it all, but, as you take subsequent doses, the level of it builds up in your bloodstream. Ask your doctor if there is a safe alternative. ...Read more

Can taking norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) and clindamycin effect my birth control implant?
No effect: The birth control implant (Implanon/Nexplanon) is extremely safe because it only releases the progestin, Etonogestrel. There is no estrogen and so the risk of clots is MUCH lower than any combined method. Failure rate is 0.05% in a year, which is almost better than getting your tubes tied. It is effective within a week of insertion and won't be affected by ANY antibiotics (except rifampin). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
