Click for Full Details: toxnet.nlm.nih.govThe National Library of Medicine (NLM) has released a new free database on drugs and breastfeeding called LactMed. This database is part of TOXNET and can be searched together with the other TOXNET databases.
LactMed is one of the newest additions to the NLM?s TOXNET system, a web-based collection of resources covering toxicology, chemical safety, and environmental health. It was developed by a pharmacist who is an expert in this subject area. Geared to the healthcare practitioner and nursing mother, LactMed contains:
? More than 450 drug records.
? Information such as maternal levels in breast milk and infant levels in blood.
? Potential effects in breastfeeding infants and on lactation itself.
? The American Academy of Pediatrics category that indicates the level of compatibility of the drug with breastfeeding.
? Alternate drugs to consider.
? References are included (as is nomenclature information), such as the drug?s Chemical Abstract Service?s (CAS) registry number and its broad drug class.
? Ancillary resources, such as a glossary of terms related to drugs and lactation, and breastfeeding links.
As a work in progress, LactMed will continue to expand with additional drugs and be enhanced with other substances, such as industrial chemicals and radiation.
