  • Doxycycline and Toddler Nursing

    Hello! Diagnosed today with left lower lobe pneumonia and prescribe Doxycycline BID for 7 days and Teslon pearls PRN. I see the doxycycline is ok as long as it’s not long term, but cannot find anything about the Teslon Pearls. Thank you!

    Mrs Rice:

    No problem with short term use of Doxycycline ( 3 weeks or less).

    Tesilon pearls are only a problem when a child ingests them "directly", such as from the bottle. Here they are terribly dangerous. So put this bottle in a REALLY SAFE PLACE.

    We do not know the amount of Benzonatate that enters milk but I think it is probably low. If you don't need these, don't take them while breastfeeding.

    So once this pneumonia is over, DISCARD THE TESSILON safely !!!

        Yes, still ok, maybe even better as infant is older, and your milk supply has dropped.
