Im nuring my 8 month old baby and had a wicked bad mirgain last week, i was floored for the whole day and still felt icky 2 days later.

Dr has given me Sumtriptan AKA Imigrain or Imigrian Recovery. i have googled but getting different answers Dr siad avoid BF for 12, one places says 8 and one places says it should be ok in usual doses. i onyl need take it if i get a mirgain.

could some one with a copy of HALES have a look see for me and see what that says.

Many Thanks

Ooh, migraines are *not fun.*

Hale categorises it as L3. PM me if you'd like more details.

You can also get reliable info from LactMed http://toxnet.nlm.nih.gov/cgi-bin/sis/htmlgen?LACT

Finally, if you're in the UK and as you're wanting information for future reference, you could contact the BfN by e-mail or by calling the Drugs in Breastmilk hotline:
