I’m also breastfeeding, my son is five months old.could this be related to antibiotics? should I stop taking them? my tooth feels good now
Doctor: Hi.Thanks for your query.Noted that you have been prescribed penicillin.This is safe even for the breastfed bab y, feeling light-headed may not be due to penicillin as such symptoms occur after the first dose only -Well, once the doubt comes, please visit your Dentist or a Family physician to get another antibiotic and another medicine and see the response. Whichever way you have to complete the treatment to.I hope this answer helps you and clears your Doubts.
