This information came from a tag on Twitter at the weekend from a mum newly diagnosed with cancer weaning her baby from the breast prior to starting chemo. Hard enough I know but after the surgery she had been prescribed domperidone to control nausea – it stimulates milk production and no one seemed to know or have thought about this. She was prescribed ondansetron instead but only after providing her team with the information about domperidone.
I havent included lots of facts about the drugs as the data can change with research but it contains some of the things I have heard from mothers over the years and some sources of support.
If you need more information please contact me. I will do all I can to support your journey as cancer has raised its ugly head too often in my own family.
As my youngest daughter nears the end of her pregnancy, I thought it was a good time to upload this information that I have been looking at for a while. I wrote the basis for a charity but it doesnt seem to have been used, so updating it and posting here. I dont have the same resources on drugs in pregnancy as I do in breastfeeding so please check UKTIS factsheets https://www.medicinesinpregnancy.org/Medicine–pregnancy/
