Can I take breast enhancement pills and breastfeed my daughter?

Hi, I am expressing for my daughter and would like to take breast enhancement pills. I have a huge supply of frozen ebm and would be giving her that and not the milk containing the medicine. My question is, would the enhancement pills work while you are breastfeeding or does lactating interfere with their effectiveness? Thank you.

I would recommend contacting a lactation consultant you are working with, or you can call the Methodist Physicians Clinic Women's Center to speak with someone regarding the question. It is important to consult your OB/GYN and/or lactation consultant when breastfeeding before starting any new medications, vitamins, or supplements to make sure it is safe to use.
