Hi & Welcome.
Zenflox-OZ is not advisable during breastfeeding.
The prescribed medication Zenflox-OZ which contains two antibiotics (Ofloxacin & Ornidazole) is secreted in the breast milk which can be harmful to the suckling infant hence, the nursing mother should avoid breastfeeding while taking this medication. Hope the suggestion given would be useful.
Best wishes.
