Just wondering if anyone knows if any drugs commonly used to treat bp are compatible with breastfeeding.  My goal was for another five months.

Hi Ellie,

There are some meds that can be compatible, I will look some up and get back to this post.  If you have in particular you would like to know about let me know.

Ellie,

I am trying to get a hold of a copy of the book, "Medications and Mother's Milk" by Thomas W. Hale Sr. This is probably the best book at finding these things out. I haven't been able to locate a copy. I may just end up purchasing it for myself. Once I do obtain a copy I will look and see what it has to say. Sorry this is taking me so long.

What I did is I had my doctor put me on the lowest dose that she could while I was breastfeeding so if my child got anyof the meds it was a small amount
