I have a staph infection and went to the ER yesterday. I was prescribed sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim. I did tell the doc I was nursing and he said he talk to the pharmacist. He said I needed to be on a certain antibiotic due to the severity of the infection. I got the bottle and on it it says do not use if pregnant or breast feeding. Wth!? The doc knew I was nursing. I really need this medicine but don't know how safe it is. Ds is 16 months by the way and doesn't nurse too often anymore. Can anyone tell me how safe it is to use please. I'm freaking out about it.
