  • Ongoing Medications in Cystic Fibrosis & Occasional Use of Antibiotics

    I have CF and have exclusively breastfed my baby since his birth in January 2013. My lactation consultant has looked over my list of medications, but I'd love some input from the experts here, too.

    1. Are the medications listed below safe to take throughout nursing? (They are ongoing maintenance medications.)

    2. Are there recommended safe antibiotics for when I am dealing with lung infections?

    Thank you!
