In general LEXAMIL is not recommended for use during pregnancy because it is excreted in human breastmilk. However, because the levels found in milk is relatively low (and probably below level of concern) it is sometimes used in lactating women. In general, so long as the infant is monitored carefully AND the risk to benefit ratio balances to the benefit side of the equation, then it is worth treatment. This does however needs a careful discussion with your GP.
