Antibiotics Home > Rifadin and Breastfeeding
Rifadin (rifampin) does pass through breast milk in low amounts. However, the amounts are so low that many experts consider Rifadin and breastfeeding to be compatible. Women who nurse while taking this antibiotic should be watchful for possible side effects in their child, such as difficulty feeding, vomiting, or diarrhea.
