Ive been breastfeeding for almost a year now and am beginning to ween my son. Because im not breastfeeding as much im starting to gain alot of weight. I want to get a jump start on weight loss by using Phenphedrine but is it safe to use while im still breastfeeding 3 times a day?

I would not use any sort of supplement while breastfeeding, even if it is only just a couple times of day. no supplement for weight loss has been proven safe for breastfeeding mothers so why take a chance.

Instead look at decreasing your calories and increasing your activity - even if it's just taking a 15-30 minute walk around the neighborhood with the bub in the stroller.

Dear Alex,
Good luck with your weight loss.
My response is : Please do not let your kiddo anywhere near ephedrine - its what they make speed/meth out of. This is why it jump starts your weight loss.

I have taken it in the past -- so I am not biased against it without personal knowledge. If it makes you jittery and loose weight, imagine what it would do to your baby? Please wait until the baby is not breastfeeding.
