Quercetin: Quercetin, bioflavonoid, is found in many plants and foods, such as red wine, onions, green tea, apples, berries, ginkgo biloba, st. John's wort, american elder, and others.

Let me advise you: Perccet compose of two medications. Oxycodone&acetaminophen however, the oxycodone component is a narcotic and could cause significant problems in a nursing infant.

Yes: The use of proactiv is safe for breastfeeding women. Its active ingredient, benzoyl peroxide, does not appear to concentrate in noticeable amounts in breast milk. You should be careful to wash your hands after you apply it to your skin and before you handle the baby.

No information: Lipozene is not an fda-approved drug so there are no published studies regarding safety during pregnancy or breast-feeding. The company can say whatever they want about it being a "natural" product and that it's not a drug, but the truth is there is no way to know whether it's safe or not.
No: Even though we tend to think of herbs and plants as natural, it does not mean they are always safe, specially for infants or brestfeeding moms. What ever we consume, we are exposing our babies via breast milk. There is simply not enough data to take the risk.See 4 more doctor answers
Not recommended: Theraflu is not recommended to be taken during pregnancy. It is a category c drug which means that there is no direct data linking it to problems in the human fetus, but it has been shown to have adverse effects in animal models. This being said, if you already took it, I would not worry. I just would not recommend taking any more!
