Hello,

Azithromycin is a safe drug during breastfeeding. The amount that gets transmitted in breast milk is very small and has no significant effects on the baby. Its a good choice of medication for your dry cough as well. I would suggest you take some OTC cough suppressant if the cough is bothering you at night and preventing you from sleeping.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
