Taking Claritin While Breastfeeding
Breastfeeding is providing nutrition to an infant using breat milk either directly by infant latching and sucking on the nipple or by feeding via bottle with expressed breast milk (when baby has difficulty suckling). Breast milk is the best milk for any baby but ...Read more
Yes: This drug is safe with nursing. FYI...many drugs are not tested as such for breast milk concentration...but all evidence suggests a good safety profile in babies even as you as 3-6 months. So during nursing if you need to take it, it should be alright. This is what I recommend in practice. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, no "D": According to lactmed, a great resource for breastfeeding mothers, Claritin (loratadine) is compatible with breastfeeding. We need to consider the effects of the medication on you, the baby and your milk supply, so make sure the kind you get has no pseudoephedrine, which can decrease your milk supply (it's usually claritin-d"). Pregnancy risk for medications is not the same a breastfeeding risk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had some shrimp tacos and now I'm itchy. Took some loratadine, can I still breastfeed my 2 month old baby if I get an allergic reaction?

A few days: I guess I would ask if you were on Xanax (alprazolam) while you were pregnant, since it is a class D drug and not recommended in pregnancy. It can be switched to other benzos such as Ativan or Serax (lorazepam and oxazepam). It is a short-acting drug which does not accumulate in fat, so it it is gone within 72 hours. You can also talk to your prescriber about Clonazepam as a substitute if it is needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No unique reaction: Unlikely that most medications will react differently in ms patients. However, Cipro (ciprofloxacin) may make things worse, but not fully understood. One must be prudent in using any med that can affect the immune system to avoid adverse immune interactions. But Claritin is fine as are many other allergy meds, as this involves histamine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No connection.: If your son is depressed, especially if he is depressed to the point, he wants to hurt himself, he needs help from a psychologist or psychiatrist or family doctor now not next week or next month. ...Read more
Claritin (loratadine) Not Atarax: You may combine nyquil & claritin (loratadine). The latter is a non-sedating antihistamine. Nyquil contains a sedating antihistamine & Atarax is another. Liquid formulations of nyquil contain a lot of alcohol. So if a drunken stupor is your goal you'll achieve it with nyquil & atarax. There are better & safer ways to treat your allergies. Skin testing is more cost-effective than immunocap & equally accurate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Progesterone-only: The mini-pill (pop) is an oral contraceptive taken daily without any breaks. It's different to the combined pill as it only contains one hormone, thus it is a progestogen only pill ... It does not carry risk of thromboembolism; it does not inhibit lactation - so can use when breast feeding. ...Read more
I no longer breastfeed and i'm stil taking the mini pill is this bad for me if i'm no longer breastfeeding?
Is it safe to start breastfeeding 2 weeks after baby when im taking a low dose of 40mg of sotalo once daily? thanks!!
Possible harm..: Sotalol is excreted in the breast milk. Adverse effects to the infant are possible. The manufacturer recommends discontinuing the drug or discontinuing the breast feeding. Discuss this with your Dr. whether the sotalol needs to be continued or whether breast feeding is an option for you. ...Read more
Can I have an ImmunoCAP test done while taking Claritin and Pepcid, or do I need to stop taking these prior to the test? If so, for how long?
Yes: Although AH may influence skin test results, they have no effect on blood tests. ...Read more
