    Default Antibiotics & nursing

    I'm already having low milk supply issues. If i start taking Tamiflu or another antibiotic, will it further effect my supply?

    No, antibiotics and antivirals (like Tamiflu) generally do not have negative impacts on milk supply.
    For questions about specific medications, contact the Infant Risk Center: http://www.infantrisk.com/

    Thanks mommal. I called.

    Sudafed will decrease your milk supply.

    Mucinex, Delsym, Tylenol, Ibueprofen all OK.
