LactMed, part of the National Library of Medicine's (NLM) Toxicology Data Network (TOXNET®), is a database of drugs and dietary supplements that may affect breastfeeding. It includes information on the levels of such substances in breast milk and infant blood, and possible adverse effects in the nursing infant. Suggested therapeutic alternatives to those drugs are provided, where appropriate. All data are derived from the scientific literature and fully referenced. Summaries of the reported information are provided and include links to other NLM databases. Supplemental links to breastfeeding resources from credible organizations are also provided.

Ratings and Reviews
Great app but can I suggest it should include a prominent disclaimer about not replacing medical advice in the case of lay person users? The Lactmed includes this but I could not find it in the app. Thank you.
Great for healthcare professionals
Highly recommend to doctors, nurses and pharmacists.
