Is it acceptable to take 0.5 MG of xanax (alprazolam) (one time) and continue to breastfeed as normal following the dose? I primarily pump breast milk.

2 doctors agree

In brief: Xanax (alprazolam)

Probably unsafe with breastfeeding, talking about just one dose, believe you don't really need it badly, can look for an alternative, its maximum half life in the nody is ~20 hours, so it can stay for up to 2 days, better avoid it, take care
