NOT RECOMMENDED: Relenza (zanamivir), tamiflu (oseltamivir phosphate), symmetrel (amantadine), Flumadine (rimantadine) are the only approved medication for influenza currently in the usa. So i would not recommend "agifen" as i can't find any information on it.

Not usually, but may: Inverted nipples can create a problem during breastfeeding by making it more difficult for the baby to properly latch. In some cases, they are also more prone to injury of the nipple surface. Even if the nipples don’t evert on their own, this characteristic should not prevent most women from successfully breastfeeding their children.

Best to be safe; NO: There are no data on the excretion of fexofenadine into human milk. Pseudoephedrine is excreted into human milk. There are no reports of adverse effects in infants who were exposed to Pseudoephedrine in breast milk. The american academy of pediatrics considers Pseudoephedrine to be compatible with breast-feeding, but Allegra has insufficient studies to prove/disprove safety. Recommend against.
