Stemetil
Hi,

My DR prescribed me stemetil tablets. I have advised her that I am breastfeeding, but she said it is safe. However i have read on the leaflet that it is not safe and I should stop BF whilst using the meds. Do you have any info for me please?

It can cause drowsiness in the baby, so you should stop breastfeeding if you want to use it.

Best wishes
