Now that you’ve had your baby, you may be wondering what medications you can take if you get sick. For the most part, the same medications that you used when pregnant can be used safely while breastfeeding. We have provided a list of over-the-counter medications that are considered to be safe for a woman to take while breastfeeding. If your symptoms are not relieved after taking a medication from this list, or you wish to take a medication not on this list, please call our office for further assistance.
◊ The American Academy of Pediatrics considers these medications to be safe & effective for breastfeeding women to use, however it is important to note that they may affect milk supply. Some women who take decongestants find that there is a decrease in the amount of milk their bodies produce. If you notice a decrease in milk supply you should stop taking decongestants.
Coughs & Colds
