  • They would both know. I used to call my midwife when I had any questions about bf and medication.

  • Call the pharmacy, they will get you info quicker. Or look it up yourself on Drugchecker.com or Drugs.com

  • I don't know if its just the pharmacies around here, but as soon as they find out I'm either pregnant or nursing, they won't help me. And the one time I was in Ohio and a pharmacy told me I could take Alieve, my baby (my oldest) puked up her guts until it was out of my system.

  • Sounds like you have horrible pharmacists! That's always who I used to ask, and if they didn't know, they look in their book to see if it's compatible with nursing/pregnancy, then tell me what it says.

    But either one should be able to tell you, probably your OB would be better to ask since it's you taking the meds.
