I had a c-section almost 2 weeks ago and ever since then haven' t had any bowel movement (even after dulcolax suppository), I have a spastic colon. I' ve really started getting uncomfortable so I used laxador tablets but only then realised that it might have an effect on my baby as I' m breastfeeding

Does this medicine go into the breastmilk?

Dear Anon
It does go into breastmilk in small dosages, rather use dulcolax syrup which is not absorbed into the blood stream
