There has been a growing number of women who use drugs during breastfeeding, with most of these drugs being compatible with this period. The objective of this research was to correlate the use of dental medications with the lactation period, and whether there were drugs passing through breast milk, as well as whether or not mothers should stop breastfeeding when they are taking medication. Among the drugs that were found, we highlight the antimicrobials, analgesics, local anesthetics, benzodiazepines and tricyclic antidepressants. These being like the drugs of greater consumption among the infants, according to the consulted literature. The study was carried out by means of a literature review of August 2018, in June 2019 in which articles were searched in Portuguese, Spanish, English language and books searched in the library of the Lutheran University of Palmas. We searched databases such as LILACS, ACADEMIC GOOGLE, PUBMED, LACTMED, and SCIELO, with articles from the years 1988 to 2019. It was noticed that the drugs were mostly compatible with breastfeeding, except that some drugs that have appeared in breast milk in small quantities, others have not presented enough research, but that until now are compatible with lactation.
