Minimal risk for breastfeeding and infant.
It increases renal excretion of Uric acid and decreases elimination of many drug by the kidneys, among them beta-lactam antibiotics, with augmented plasma levels and effectiveness.
Excretion into breast milk is clinically non-significant, with no problems observed among breastfed infants from treated mothers that could be attributed to Probenecid (reportedly, one case of self-limited diarrhea occurred in a child whose mother was taking a Cephalosporin together with Probenecid).
We do not have alternatives for Probenecid 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.
Your contribution is essential for this service to continue to exist. We need the generosity of people like you who believe in the benefits of breastfeeding.
Thank you for helping to protect and promote breastfeeding.
