Doctor :  
The drug that you are on is not associated with your present symptoms.
Doctor :   You probably may be having an infection over the nipple that is causing you the discharge.
Doctor :  
The other possiblility is that it could have been caused due to the infection of the ducts.
Doctor :  
Since your symptoms are recent in onset, I would suggest you to consult a doctor for physical examination.

If the infection is confirmed, then you may need to be on antibiotics both for treatment and prevention of complications.
