Anyone else take propranolol/inderal?

Any other ebfing moms take either of these drugs? I have postpartum hyperthyroidism. He's given me 40 mgs 2x/day. All the other times I've had hyperthoidism, I had 20mgs 2-3x/day.

I guess it's safe, I just hate the idea of taking any kind of meds while ebfing.

I'm taking 1 after he goes down for the night so that helps it get out of my system before his next feeding.

I am not taking that med, but I wanted to suggest that you check out Dr. Thomas Hale's website. You can log in as a guest and search for the name of the drug and read all of his responses to doctor's questions about the drug for nursing moms.

I've taken it in the past for tremors. I know It's only a problem in pregnancy at higher doses. You can always call and ask your ob if you are concerned.
