Can you take Chloprheniramine maleate while nursing an infant? Will the allergy medication affect my baby or milk supply?
It is best to talk to a doctor or lactation consultant before using chlorphiramine while breastfeeding. It may be better to use an antihistamine or allergy medication that is more compatible with nursing like loratadine.
I would encourage you to speak with a health care provider before using any medications while nursing. Also, consider investing in a copy of Medications and Mother’s Milk: A Manual of Lactational Pharmacology. Having this reference will save you time and money when deciding what is safe for you and your nursing infant.
