Due to health problems I'm being forced to start a new medication that is excreted in breast milk. Although I'm very much opposed to taking this medication my doctors say it is necessary and are withholding my license until I begin treatment (I need my license to return to work - as I have a 40 minute commute and can't car pool). I do not want to put my daughter on formula so I am looking for mom's who have tried more natural alternatives (like goat's milk and vitamin drops perhaps). Any advice - what worked what didn't?
NOTE: I am in the process of getting a second opinion but it's a slow process in the small town that I'm from and am awaiting a referral out of town. I'm worried that I won't be able to begin treatment in time to get my license back in order to return to work (I must be on treatment for so many months before getting it back). For these reasons I feel like the doctors are giving me no choice but to take this medication.
