Meds while Bf'ing?

So I need some advice. I sound like a drag queen right now because there is so much drainage and my throat is killing me. I want to take some you think it is alright?
DS was just diagnosed with bronchitis yesterday and is on breathing treatments every 4 hours so I don't want to take anything to affect that. He is also on antibiotics. he is only 6months old. I think I have caught his cold that lead to the bronchitis.

Sudafed can dry your milk, so be aware. Use the right kind and only the amount that is recommended.

I agree with the above. Sudafed is considered safe in that it is safe for the baby to drink the milk, but it is not good for your milk supply.
