Q:

hi I am breastfeeding my 3 months baby and from 2-3 days having tooth ache so I am taking painkiller .is it safe :-(



Devika, which pain killer are you taking and how much quantity ?

I am taking ketrol , 1 tablet in a day if required

please consult doctor before taking pain killer , it reaches to baby through Breast milk

It is best to discuss this with the doctor. Always ask for safety while breast feeding if any doctor prescribes medications. This drug has limited data available and an alternative would be preferred. Check with your doctor if Ibuprofen is an option for you.
