Nonprescription Drugs and Lactation: Helping Families Make Informed Decisions
The use of nonprescription products by breastfeeding mothers is even more common than
the use of prescription drugs. Pharmacists, doctors, and lactation consultants must be able to provide proper advice on the use or safety of nonprescription products during breastfeeding. The presentation on breastfeeding and nonprescription drugs will provide the necessary information to do so.
