LactMed

Need to know more about drugs/supplements and breastfeeding? LactMed can help!

Find information about maternal and infant drug levels, possible effects on lactation and on breastfed infants, and alternative drugs to consider.

The LactMed database by NHS (UK) contains information on drugs and other chemicals to which breastfeeding mothers may be exposed. It includes information on the levels of such substances in breast milk and infant blood, and the possible adverse effects in the nursing infant. Suggested therapeutic alternatives to those drugs are provided, where appropriate. All data are derived from the scientific literature and fully referenced. A peer review panel reviews the data to assure scientific validity and currency.

The smartphone app is available both for iOS and Android.
