Ask a pharmacist.

I was prescribed movicol just a few weeks ago and I have nine so DD. GP said it was fine while breastfeeding!

Just that really.

I've been on movicol for several years and left a message with my drs today to ask if I can use it while bf. They've come back and said no.

I stopped using it when I got pregnant on the advice of one dr at my surgery. I was struggling on lactulose so went to see another dr who said I could take it and he didn't know why I was told to stop in the first place. I just wonder if this is the same situation.

Any drs out there who can advise me please?
TIA
