Thanks for your query

Taximo 200 mg should not be taken during breast feeding your baby.

If it is needed then you should temporarily discontinue breast feeding and other alternative to this drug are available.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Hope I answered , if you have any other query I would be honored to reply.

Thanks for writing back XXXXXXX

If you have just taken a single dose then you can wait only for one day and drink more water to get the drug excreted in urine.

Other alternative to this is cefaclor , which you can take after consulting your doctor .Hope this will be helpful to you.

If you do not have any other clarifications , you can close discussion and rate my answer.

Thanks once again.
