Is breastfeeding safe while taking an appetite suppressant?
Patient : I am considering taking an appetite suppressant while feeding my daughter to help me shed weight. I've attached the nutrition information, and the label says take 1-3 pills per day. I actually don't nurse, but I do pump breastmilk twice a day and give it to my daughter (who is 1 year old) in a bottle. Would these pills be safe for the two of us considering I don't nurse all day?
