Diet pills and nursing...

I'm not sure if this where I should post this but I'm just so upset with my friend. Okay, she has a wedding she's in this July and wants to lose some weight before then, well I guess diet and exercising just isn't taking it off fast enough for her so she started taking diet pills 1 a day in the a.m. This isn't what is so upsetting it's the fact that she's still nursing her son. He's 2 1/2 and only nurses at night to go to sleep, she says that by the time he nurses, it's been 12 hrs or so and that the diet pill are no longer in her milk so he's not being affected at all. Is this true? I know that if you have one glass of alcohol that it's out of your system within what? 5 or 6 hours. Is what she saying true, am I just freaking out for no reason? If anyone has any info or knows where I can find it please let me know I'm kinda worried for her DS.

I have no idea if it's true or not, but there is no way I'd risk it, especially with something as unregulated as diet pills.

Go to and look it up. Very good cite on breastfeeding and it will have factual information on this. Sounds bad to me but look it up.
