LactMed App

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. Please note that the app is updated less frequently than the on-line records, so the most up-to-date information is found on-line.
