  • Read the label, it usually will say something like do not take while pregnant", etc. Otherwise, check with your doctor.

  • I think you will find the info you need at Laxatives and Breastfeeding

    Pretty much all maufacturers will put "do not use while pregnant of breastfeeding" on the lable to cover themselves leagally. There are lots of products that say this and are safe, so this is not a reliable place to look for that info.
