i have got home from a&e after what doctors belive may be gallstones. I was given Tramadol and Buscopan but after reading the leaflets am weary of taking them as i am still breastfeeding my 14mth old baby (although only now once each evening). The doctors were aware i am nursing. i was given doses in hospital, the last dose was aprox 10am and am not due to feed baby till 6pm. should i feed her still tonight or give cows milk? Should i carry on with these or ask my gp to give me alternitives? thankyou
Tramadol and buscopan enter the breast milk. It is not recommended that you use them while breastfeeding unless "the benefit outweighs the risk". How bad is your pain anyways? If it isn't too bad, you should just try some tylenol which is safe with breastfeeding.
