Awhile back the ER doctor prescribed me pyridum for the discomfort of the uti and told me it is labeled with a ? In his book and that they don't know about the drug and breastfeeding. He said I could take it if I really needed it but left the decision up to me. Has anyone taken this drug? I have the onset of a uti and really really need some relief.

Call your child's pedi or your OB... even L&D will be able to give that information, or at least here they do.

I took it, but not while breastfeeding.

Here's what I got from LactMed. I wouldn't take it without talking with your doctor first.
