    Default Amoxicillin and milk supply

    I'm taking amoxicillin for a sinus infection. I went from pumping 10 oz a day to about 6 oz. I think it might be due to the antibiotic, but I'm not sure. Has anyone else had this problem?

    i have been taking it to and haven't had any problems. when i took a sudafed i noticed a drop. it could be the stress of being sick.

    I would also guess that it's your actual illness, not the antibiotic, causing a supply drop. Keep well hydrated, rest, and eat well. It should bounce back up when you start getting well.
