Tamiflu...safe? PIOG
January 30, 2013 at 1:21 AM

Dh has the flu and the Dr gave him tamiflu...and just in case the runny nose I have is the flu she gave me a Rx too.  I've tried looking it up but there isn't much out there that says its bad...or ok.  What would you do?  My supply is already low and I'm afraid that if I stop nursing her for the 10days I am to take it then my supply will just go away cause pumping doesn't do much for me anymore.  And with me being a SAHM I can't not take it and end up with the flu becuase I won't be able to handle it well(I am a big ol baby when it comes to being sick).

do you think it would be safe to take and still nurse dd?

    I plan to call the hospital and ask one of the lactation consultants about it in the morning but I didn't think about it until after I had taken 1 and a few hrs later nursed dd.
