I have a sore breast with clogged duct. I am going to take the antibiotic Doxycycline. I am still breast feeding a 12 month old. There shouldn't be any problems, right?

Did your doc prescribe it? If you’re breast-feeding, you need to make sure that the drug you’re taking won’t get to your baby via your breast milk.

Short term use is not considered problematic, according to FDA information, but long-term use may be a concern, since it can be excreted in breast milk.

Thus, make sure to only take it as prescribed, and keep all appointments with your doctor.

The FDA list the typical side effects of Doxycyline as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash.

Is there anything else I can help with?
