Ondansetron and breastfeeding

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2007-11-12

Question:
i am currently 33 weeks pregnant and having been taking ondansetron since week 16. i have read some things about not breastfeeding if you are on ondansetron. now that i am coming to the end of my pregnancy should i stop taking this medication if i want to breastfeed? how safe is it to breastfeed if i need to take this all the way to the end of the pregnancy?

Answer:
Unfortunately,there is no information on the use of ondansetron and breastfeeding. However, NVP is normally resolved by delivering your baby so you won't need to to take the ondansetron anymore.
