It is important for breastfeeding mothers to receive necessary medications whether for chronic therapy or for a newly diagnosed condition. Almost all medications with a molecular weight below 300 Da will appear in human milk. Only a small number of drugs have the potential to harm the nursing infant. Spacing maternal dosing to just after each nursing may decrease the amount of drug appearing in milk. LactMed website contains the known pharmacology information for over 1000 drugs, chemicals, and herbal compounds.
