  • Ankolysing spondylitis

    Hi, I'm wondering about Sulfasalazine and breastfeeding. This med is my only current option for treatment at this time. My six month old doesn't take a bottle well, when at all. My rheum will not prescribe sulfasalazine until I wean. Is this necessary?? From my research, it's not and this med is generally considered safe while breastfeeding. Does the risk outweigh the benefits at six months old? Is my doctor right or wrong? I sent her the link and information from the NIH LactMed site. If she's wrong, I'll just find a new doctor.

    P.s. I did see the previous post on this med, but wanted to make sure nothing had changed in the three years since it wad last answered.
