Common Questions and Answers about Allergy medicine ok to take while breastfeeding


Avatar f tn said I need to take half a benadryl every night for a week. Has anyone had to take benadryl while pregnant and was everything okay?
Avatar f tn I know how you feel.
Avatar n tn I know what you mean about not wanting to take medicine while breastfeeding, I too do not like taking medicine while breastfeeding - which meant I went a LONG time without many meds (except my thyroid med). Are you involved in any breastfeeding groups? What area do you live in if you don't mind me asking?
480331 tn?1310403529 I have been battling a cold for the past few days, and have not taken any OTC meds, because I'm not sure what's ok to take while breastfeeding. Is it ok to take cold medicine while nursing?
Avatar f tn As far as I know if you're breastfeeding its pretty much the same medicine thats ok for pregnancy. I know you can still breastfeed if you have a cold and it shouldn't hurt baby.
358971 tn?1330888975 Yea, her baby will be fine. they say to take it easy on the IBPROFEN and ADVIL during 1st and 3rd trimesters. but occasionally for a headache is ok. I take 400mg. probably 1X a week for inflammation on my legs. it works fine. and I've done this since my BFP.. no problems so far, but I won't be taking it in 3rd trimester.

Avatar f tn Is it ok to take excedrin migraine e while bf? I don't want to take anything stronger and Tylenol doesn't work lol sorry for posting here I know better but the lactation consultants at wic are completely useless.
Avatar n tn Xanex isnt safe to just abrumptly stop, but isnt safe to take while pregnant. There are safe alternatives to take while pregnant. I cant remember the name of the med they gave me to take instead of xanex but there are options.
Avatar f tn Take allergy medicine. When my son turned 1 I was done breastfeeding so my doctor said antihistamine in medicine dries ur milk up. Get the nin drowsy kind. Took about a week.
Avatar f tn I would not breastfeed while taking this med. Pls call your Dr or LC for safety requirements, or to switch you to a compatable med safe for nursing. There is another website called you can check for Medicine/Drug safety while pregnant/nursing.
Avatar f tn I use to take Soma and something else called Parafon Forte for back problems before I got pregnant. I was told that Soma is present in breast milk and could affect the baby. My doctor said if I needed it while breastfeeding that I would have to stop nursing until I stopped the medicine. I decided to just stop the medicine completely.
151668 tn?1239921105 t affect her? I prefer Dayquil and Nyquil, but am willing to take whatever I can to get through this thing. My son has been sick with on and off fevers, and is congested, so I'm probably going to have the same symptoms. Crossing my fingers it's just a cold with no fever. But I need to know about bf while running a fever as well as taking meds just in case. Thanks...
Avatar f tn Does any one know what cold medicines if any are okay to take while breast feeding? & also my baby boy is 2 weeks and I can hear him getting sick when he breathes he sounds all congested does anyone know what I can do to help him too?
Avatar f tn t know that, cause i know I be so nervous to take medicine for anything during my pregnancy I just deal with the pain
Avatar f tn If u want to dry ur milk up just take some over the counter allergy medicine. It has antihistamines in it and that drys up ur milk. I took the dollar general brand when my son turned 1 and switched to cow milk.
Avatar f tn I was taking tramadol and ibuprofen that my doctor prescribed me after i came home she knew i was only going to breastfeed, i did research and they were ok to take while breastfeeding.
593810 tn?1251223030 Your doctor will tell you the same thing which is to take the tylenol although some people like to take the non medicine approach while pregnant and that is fine too. Nothing wrong with either way.
Avatar f tn She is miserable without it and right now has a wicked cold. I have been reading now that clarinex is OK to take and other sites saying it is not OK. She is 21 weeks right now. Why would they say it is OK if it isn't? Thanks for any info.
1399033 tn?1449587779 I feel terrible. I know my doctor wouldn't prescribe me something if I really didn't need it. I don't like taking anything but I need it. My anxiety has gotten so bad. I had it before pregnancy but it seems to get worse while I'm pregnant. I'm supposed to take it 2x a day. Does anyone else take it? How do you feel about it? It's better in the long run I know but, just worried I'll hurt baby. (Just another mama fear)... I trust my doctor.
Avatar f tn For tonight you could suck on some halls menthol cough drops that are safe and take regular tylenol but in regards to cold medicine I would contact your doc/ob first thing in morn so they can give you the accurate medicine as none of us our docs:) Good luck hope you feel better soon.
467126 tn?1283144858 I ate peanut butter all through my pregnancy and Riley got very sick when I ate peanut butter while breastfeeding. So I think it's right to assume he is allergic to it. Not sure if they are related. But yeah that's the reason why, allergies.
Avatar m tn I talked to my doctor about allergy medicine and he recommended I wait until I was at least 5 month to take anything. So I would definitely ask your doctor before taking anything especially since your just 11 weeks.
