Can I Take This While Breastfeeding?

It is a cough suppressant (dextromethorphan) with an expectorant (guaifenesin) in it. Dh picked it up for me from walmart today. It's called Mucus Relief Cough. Can I take it? My dr's office is closed and I am out of the state so I don't really have anyone I can ask....

Dextromethorphan is an L1 (safest)

Guaifenesin is an L2 (safer)

Yes, you just want to avoid any decongestant as that can dry you up.

I take mucinex a lot and it works very well. Like stated above any decongestant can decrease your milk supply.
