I haven't been around these boards much (okay at all) since DD was born in Sept - just couldn't seem to juggle a toddler and a newborn and an internet life!

But I really need to know - if anyone has this book, could you look up Diamox (ETA: generic name is acetazolamide) for me? And possibly any alternatives to it (don't know how book is laid out). I have had a copy of the book on special order with the bookstore in town FOREVER - my guess is that it will finally come in whenever I am done nursing..... :

Thanks SO MUCH for anyone who can help!

Check out for the book - you can get an older edition for less than $2~!
You can also buy online access!

My copy is at work, but Kelly Mom lists it as "approved" as a diuretic for breastfeeding moms:

After 4 m/c, our stillheart.gif is here!

I only have the 2002 edition, but it says a lactation risk of L2 (limited studies in bf women), with no specific pediatric concerns.
