Farmaci e allattamento: Un approccio teorico-pratico

Translated title of the contribution: Drugs and breastfeeding

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In the past, drugs therapy has been considered more or less routinely contraindicated during breastfeeding, creating an improper and fictitious conflict of interest between the health of the mother and that of the nursed baby. On the contrary, according to recent scientific literature the great majority of common drugs are allowed during breastfeeding. We suggest a rationale approach in order to make the clinical decision regarding the safety of each different drug in the nursing mother.
