Drugs in Lactation

Analysis Consortium (DLAC)

The goal of the study is to learn about drug safety during breastfeeding. We measure drug levels in breast milk to understand how safe they are for babies, when they are exposed through breast milk. The study involves collection of small breast milk samples between two doses of your medication and filling out a short questionnaire.

Who is eligible?

All nursing mothers who are taking one or more drug(s) on the study priority list and are able to communicate in English. (For inquiry about the priority list, please contact us.)
