you must absolutely not take over the counter medicines if you are still breastfeeding.

Dear @Niharika
There are certain medicines that are breastfeeding friendly. However your doctor will be the best person to prescribe those to u. Don't forget to mention that you are breastfeeding.
Kindly visit ur doc.
Best Wishes...

Do consult your doctor over the phone please. Never take medicines without consulting and always mention to your doc that you are breastfeeding mom.Take care
