LactMed Basics has been revised. This pamphlet describes and helps users search LactMed, the free online database for breastfeeding mothers. The LactMed database has information on the effects of drugs on lactation. We’ve recently heard that this database has become one of the most accessed in the TOXNET suite of databases, now being the third most accessed among eleven databases. The American Academy of Pediatrics has retired its periodic list of drugs used during lactation, and has plans to indicate that LactMed is the preferred database in upcoming policy statements.
