Hi there
No, rather not. Any medicine that you take will be excreted in your breastmilk and baby will also ingest the medicine. Sometimes the doctor will prescribe espiride/eglonyl which helps increase breastmilk production, improves your mood, and sometimes has a side-effect of weight gain. First discuss this with your doctor (you will need a prescription). Good luck.
