Is it ok to take this? The doctor was going to say DayQuil/NyQuil, but when I said I was nursing she told me to get this instead and said it's safe for nursing and pregnant women. I just took my first dose and as I was looking at the ingredients, I saw menthol is one of them. Is it still ok to take?

It might cause a slight reduction in supply, but you can counteract that by drinking extra fluid. Very little actually passes into milk-- the molecules are too large.
