Many mothers need to take medicines during their pregnancy and almost all medicines pass into breast milk in small quantities. Most are generally considered safe for a mother to take but some medicines that must be avoided include lithium, cytotoxic agents, retinoids and radio-pharmaceuticals. Search or browse the list below for guidelines on taking individual medicines while breastfeeding. Please Note: Always consult your doctor or healthcare specialist for medical advice in relation to drug use while pregnant or breastfeeding.

Most commonly used drugs are relatively safe for breastfed babies. The dose received via milk is generally small and much less than the known safe doses of the same drug given directly to neonates and infants. Drugs contraindicated during breastfeeding include anticancer drugs, lithium, oral retinoids, iodine, amiodarone and gold salts.
