    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I was recently perscribed the above two drugs and am currently exclusively breastfeeding my 5 1/2 month old. The dosage I was given is Levofloxin 500mg once a day for 14 days and Flagyl 500mg twice a day. I've gotten mixed feedback from Dr., Pediatrician and lactation consultant and just wanted to get some more on what I should do with my LO. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    My favorite websites for looking up info on medications while pregnant and breasfeeding are www.safefetus.com and www.kellymom.com . They both have up-to-date info on which drugs are safe and which are not.
