LactMed Adds Complementary and Alternative Medicine Products

LactMed, the National Library of Medicine’s database of drugs and other chemicals to which breastfeeding mothers may be exposed, has added complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) products.

LactMed focuses on potential side effects in mothers and infants and on other problems associated with the products. The CAM records, currently 19 with 100 expected, feature a new field for the products’ scientific genus and species names.

 A complete list of CAM records in the database can be found by searching for “complementary therapies” in the main LactMed search box.
