Can I take medications while breastfeeding?
While you should always consult your doctor before taking new medications while breastfeeding, there are few medications that are known to impact milk supply or infant health. You should, however, limit your caffeine intake to about 300 mg per day.
Talk to your healthcare provider about any vitamin or mineral supplements you may need while breastfeeding. You can see a complete list of medications and how they may or may not affect breastfeeding at the NIH's Drugs and Lactation Database website, or call the Infant Risk Center at (806) 352-2519.
