I was on pentasa all through my pregnancy on GI's advice to maintain remission. Now that I am breastfeeding I was still taking it. My pediatrician and lactation consultants all said it was an L3 drug, and not enough is known. But, they said to stay on it if I needed it to stay healthy. I've stayed on it for 2+ weeks, but finally called my GI to see if I still really needed it (I've been in remission for years and never notice a difference if I skip Pentasa for a day or 2). He said he couldn't make a recommendation either way and I could go off if I want, though he warned me it would be bad if I flared now too. So, now I can't decide if I want to stay on it. I would prefer to go off, but am worried that I could not be a good Mom if a flare started, and I am sure I would be a mess if I had to go on pred.
Anyone have any advice/experience with this?
Currently in remission!
