    Default Advil OK?

    I'm dealing with my second bout of mastitis and Tylenol is not cutting it anymore. Is Advil ok to use while breastfeeding? I remember avoiding it while pregnant, so I wanted to double check.

    My doctor prescribed ibuprofen (Advil's active ingredient) after the births of both of mine.

    My doctor prescribed ibuprofen (Advil's active ingredient) after the births of both of mine. Its still always a good idea to talk with your doctor about medications though.

    What are you doing for the infection?
