    I need to start Mounjoro preferably but ozempic if a better option for breastfeeding. Long story short I had some postpartum complications that effected my already compromised liver and this medication will help although not fda approved yet so my PCP has to prescribe. My baby is 5 months old and exclusively breastfed, just started on purées. I would love to continue to breastfeed but either way, I have to take the med and don’t want to wean. Will your results on GLP-1’s be officially released soon? I have an apt next week and want to be able to show my pcp that it is safe so he will prescribe. I’m seeing a lot on wegovy/ozempic in the forums that it should be safe but was curious on your findings for Mounjoro. Thanks in advance!

    We are still working on data collection for Mounjaro, but I am happy to share what we have concluded with the GLP-1s so far. We have yet to actually find the GLP-1 medications transferred into the milk themselves, HOWEVER, we do not recommend that nursing mothers use them if their breastfed child is younger than 12 months old. In our research, several of the mothers who used these medications experienced a decrease in milk supply and we suspect due to the decrease in caloric consumption paired with the way these medications work, there will be a decrease nutritional components of the breast milk which could negatively impact the rapidly growing infant. That being said, there are a couple of options to make sure your baby is getting what he/she needs in terms of nutrition without you having to wear entirely. Can you call and speak with one of the nurses so that we can walk you through some of your choices? 806-352-2519
