OTC meds to dry up?

I'm weaning my almost 13month old due to severe thrush issues and I haven't nursed since Tues AM and haven't pumped since Wed PM. I wasn't full until Fri PM and have just been hand expressing in the shower but that's not helping much. I always heard Sudafed wasn't good for BFing because it dries up your milk. If I take it now will it help prevent engorgement and Mastitis?? I'm starting to feel pain and don't want to pump and start all over again with producing more milk.
Any advice??
