Diethylpropion hydrochloride passes through breast milk. The manufacturer recommends that breastfeeding women use caution while taking the drug. Therefore, if you are breastfeeding, you should talk with the doc/pharmacist before taking the med.
Studies have shown that Diethylpropion passes through breast milk in humans. Also, the drug is chemically similar to amphetamines, which are known to have negative effects on nursing infants. It is important to remember that breastfeeding is usually a time of increased caloric need for mothers, not usually a time to be dieting. If your healthcare provider decides that is okay for you to take Diethylpropion while breastfeeding, be sure to watch for any side effects in your infant.
Please take care, best wishes!
