Please help! Accidentally taken antibiotics and breastfeeding

My partner has been taking oxytetracycline 250mg and somehow the tablets had been placed in my iron supplements box. Without realising I have been taking these tablets for the last 8 days. At the moment I am breast feeding my 2 and a half week old baby and I've researched that you shouldn't take this whilst breastfeeding. I am so worried I have caused harm to my baby and in floods of tears. Someone please advice :'(


  • Hi Tinaaa. You poor thing - you must be so worried! Please phone NHS Direct on 111 and get some expert help.
  • Always a question for your personal physician. Don't delay. The peace of mind alone makes a big difference.
