Brief Answer:
After 48 hours.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Most of the drugs get eliminated from the body by liver and kidney metabolism. You can start breastfeeding after 48 hours, by then most of the drug will be out of the system.

Also try taking plenty of liquids in the meantime to get the drug out fast.

Hope I have answered your query.
