Medication secreted in breast milk
Hi, I'm new to this forum, although I have been active on other forums with gardenweb for years. I know this is a forum for infants, but there is no pregnancy forum where I can ask questions!
I'm expecting my first baby in early May and I have been taking Aldomet (methyldopa) for high blood pressure for 2 years. It is a "safe" (although who really knows) medication for pregnancy. It is secreted in breast milk, but all the sites I've researched say "probably safe" to breastfeed.
Did you/are you taking meds that are secreted into breast milk, and if so, did your doctor recommend not to breastfeed? I see the doc tomorrow, but 2 doctors have already given me conflicting opinions.
TIA for any light you can shed on the subject!!
