Question: Breastfeeding mom concerned about mixing Nitrofur Monohy CP

 barbsuelikesyou - Wed Feb 27, 2008 11:56 am

I am a breastfeeding mom with a 8 month old. I was presrcibed Nitrofur Monohy CP (Generic for Macrobid) for a UTI. My daughter was also prescribed Amoxicillin at the same time for an ear infection. Will these drugs interact dangerously for her?

Congratulations on your commitment to breastfeeding. Neither of these drugs are a problem.

Best wishes
