I suggest you ask your Dr. for a different medication.-

masso; gave you a great answer you should talk to your family doctor or call you Obgyn this morning. as far as I know about the stronger they give after childbirth is Tylenol to nursing mothers for their own pain and much safer for the baby. but please give them a call first. congratulations Chuck1957
