    Not if it has aspirin. Aspirin is one of the few things off limits while nursing.

    Excedrin Tension has no aspirin and it works marvelously.

    from lactmed:

    Aspirin is best avoided during breastfeeding; however, some expert opinion indicates that low-dose (75 to 162 mg daily) aspirinmay be considered as an antiplatelet drug for use in breastfeeding women.[1] After aspirin ingestion, salicylic acid is excreted into breastmilk, with high doses resulting in disproportionately high milk levels. Long-term, high-dose maternal aspirin ingestion probably caused metabolic acidosis in one breastfed infant. Reye's syndrome is associated with aspirin administration to infants with viral infections, but the risk of Reye's syndrome from salicylate in breastmilk is unknown. If low-dose aspirin is taken, avoid breastfeeding for 1 to 2 hours after a dose to minimize antiplatelet effects in the infant. An alternate drug is preferred over high-dose aspirin.

    Quoting Lcherniske:

    This. It works better for my migraines than the excedrin migraine. :)
