    got it!


    It's an L2 (as many 'considered safe' meds are - even for chronic use - read more about that here) and the half life is fast (about 3 hrs)... and it's approved for use in BF mothers, by the AAP.
    You've got to figure what you're willing to do as the next step - y/k?

    The info I included in my first post was the one he referenced on his forum. The half-life is how long it takes for half to clear. The "time to clear" that I included is how long it takes for it to be statistically metabolized by your body. :-)

    Prednisone is a different medication, but has similar properties. That's why he referenced it in the entry.
