    Transcript

    00:01 So let's wrap up this video series.

    00:02 Most drugs administered to lactating women are detectable in breast milk.

    00:07 The concentrations of drugs achieved in the breast milk is usually low and often lower than what we would give a neonatal dose in appropriate medications.

    00:16 Now, there's not as much reliable data regarding toxicity from drug use during pregnancy and breastfeeding as we have with other medications.

    00:24 But LactMedNIH is a free and searchable database of drugs and other chemicals which nursing mothers may be exposed.

    00:32 All medications, over the counter or prescription, should be cleared with the physician before taking them while breastfeeding.

    00:41 Thank you for watching our video today.
