Question Still having supply issues, questions about herbs

I'm still having supply issues. I have been drinking mothers milk tea about 5 times a day but it is literally makeing me sick I gag taking drinks of it which bites because I wasn't opposed to the taste before this.

I cannot take fenugreek (I shouldn't even be having it in my tea but I handle it okay) because I'm hypoglycemic and fenugreek makes hypoglycemia worse.

SO I want to take blessed thistle and marshmallow root but I have NO IDEA how much of that I can take.

Any ideas?? I don't feel like bugging my LL leader AGAIN this week...she's probably ready to lose her mind with me! LOL

I think kellymom has a lot of good info on all types of herbs. Just go through there and see what they say. I only ever tried the fenugreek, so n personal experience.

Have you asked your OB about reglan? Most docvs will perscribe it and it's the only thing I've found works for me.

Re: Still having supply issues, questions about herbs

I wanted domperidone because I have IBS and reglan irritates it bad. Dr won't prescribe it w/out an appt (he's one of those money suckers, won't even refer me to an endo w/out an appt even though I've had 3 appts concerning those types of issues in the last 4 months)

Re: Still having supply issues, questions about herbs

Oh and the reason that is an issue is because being a single mom w/2 kids, no car, no sitter, it's VERY hard to do the dr visit thing. I'd have to make sure I got an appt after my mom got off of work (which would have to be booked about a month in advance) and hope she isn't busy that night to drive me.

Would you order the domp. online? Docs are hard to get it out of. I took it for awhile.

You can get dom from globaldrugs.tv

Getting it from a doctor is pretty much pointless. I got my to prescribe it, but she only gave me enough for a week, even though it can sometimes take 6 weeks to see a difference. And the dosage she gave me was totally wrong, anyway.

Re: Still having supply issues, questions about herbs

I think I'll try the reglan again. I figure it's been almost 2 years since I took it last...maybe it'll affect me differently.
