Can I take Capoten if I am breastfeeding?

You should not take Capoten (captopril) while breastfeeding. Though only about 1% of the medication is passed into human milk, experts say the drug, which is prescribed to treat high blood pressure and certain heart problems, may cause serious harm to a baby. Discuss the risks with your doctor, who will help you decide whether to continue breastfeeding or discontinue taking Capoten.
