If you'll check the archives of this forum you'll find I have often discussed this peculiar drug. It is deeply beloved by many SA GP's, who appear to have been oddly taught about it in their training, and believe it does wonders. Elsewhere in the world it is not used as it is used here. I would NEVER ever prescribe it, in a lactating mother or otherwise, but many do. You need to ask the doc who wrote the prescription for information about the EVIDENCE for benefits of this drug in this situation, and about any possible risks, including any possible risks to a breastfed baby
