I am being induced next Thurs for hypertension, among other things. I have a uti, diagnosed yesterday. My ob prescribed macrobid, a class b drug, since this is a recurring problem over the last month and a half for me not resolved with cranberry or augmentin. I am supposed to be still taking the meds until Fri, the day after I deliver.
Macrobid is not recommended after 38 weeks (I am 37) nor is it recommended for breastfeeding.
My question is will this drug be in my collostrum? I am debating taking it until Tues night and quitting for the Thurs delivery. What if I were to go into labor tonight. Should I even take it? My ob is out until Tues, which is a long time with this bothersome uti.
I guess my main question is how long will this be in my system to effect my collostrum/breastmilk. This is my 5th, my milk always comes in on the 3rd day.
