  • From what I can tell not enough testing has been done, so I would talk to your doctor and your child's pediatrician and if they say that it is okay then to take it. By telling them both it will allow them monitor your child for any issues. You can also check out the book Medication and Mother's Milk it will let you know what drugs are safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
