Anusol suppositories

Hi, just a quick question on the Anusol suppositories. My doctor prescribed them to me, and the pharmacy gave me the "Anusol soothing relief" ones. The leaflet inside says NOT to use it while breastfeeding (a triangle with an exclamation mark in it!). I took a look at the other suppositories (Anusol HC) and that leaflet says you can use it while breastfeeding.

The active ingredients are the same. Anyone know what the deal is? And oh yeah, obviously I'm breastfeeding. grin

Have you had a look at lactmed? Orr there's a breastfeeding and medication page on Facebook who might be able to help.

For what it's work I find a lot of meds say no in the leaflet but checking them out on lactmed suggests they're fine
