Most drugs have been found to be excreted in human breast milk. Usually when the drug is taken in therapeutic amounts for short periods of time by the mother, the levels of the drug in breast milk are sufficiently low to be of little hazard to the infant.

Discontinue breast feeding. Frequently this can be accomplished on a temporary basis with the mother pumping her breasts to maintain lactation while the response of the infant is monitored.
