I had my post partum visit today and due to some problems I have been having, my OB put me on medication. I am going to have the prescription filled tomorrow, but wanted to know if anyone else has taken this or something like it.
Anusol HC suppositories. YUCK. My OB prescribed for me due to bathroom problems (bleeding with bm's). I have talked with her about how important BF is to me and that I do not want to do anything to compromise my milk supply for my LO. I am not going on BC b/c I don't want to risk any changes to my supply.
If anyone has taken Anusol, has it interfered at all with BF'ing?? I looked on the internet and have seen warnings to consult a physician before taking this medication if breastfeeding.
Here's what I found when looking online:
Pregnancy and Breastfeeding
Certain medicines should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding. However, other medicines may be safely used in pregnancy or breastfeeding providing the benefits to the mother outweigh the risks to the unborn baby. Always inform your doctor if you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy, before using any medicine.
The safety of this medicine during pregnancy and breastfeeding has not been established. Seek medical advice from your doctor.
All the major hemorrhoidal preparations, such as Americaine, Anusol, Nupercainal, Preparation H, and Tucks gel or pads are safe to use while breastfeeding.
Also, I have to take Colace and Fibersure. Has anyone taken these as well?
