Very Low Risk for breastfeeding


Safe. Compatible.

Alternatives

We do not have alternatives for Ipecacuanha since it is relatively safe.

Suggestions made at e-lactancia are done by APILAM´s pediatricians and pharmacists, and are based on updated scientific publications.
It is not intended to replace the relationship you have with your doctor but to compound it.
