Re: drying up help?

I think an off label use for psuedophedrine is drying up milk. That's why you can't take it while BFing. I hpe that you get it taken care of soon. Karen

I found out the hard way w/ my first dc - I had a terrible cold, called the ped's office to find out if I could take the cold medicine I had on hand (which had psuedoephedrine in it) and they told me that yup, it was just fine, go ahead...bad plan! I spent a month trying to get my supply back up!

Re: drying up help?

Doc's actually will not prescribe anything like that anymore, I guess for about 10 years now is what my OB said. I called when Noah was 6 months because he has torticollis and I was only nursing him on one side so I thought if i stop all together his head would get better. But to no avail the doc said nothing could be giving or prescribed to dry up milk anymore.
