Is it safe to use Symlin if I am breastfeeding?

Researchers don't know if it's safe to use the diabetes drug Symlin (pramlintide) if you're breastfeeding. Studies haven't been done to see if the medication passes into breast milk, but many similar drugs do. Your doctor will prescribe Symlin to you only if the benefits of the medication outweigh its potential risks to your baby. Talk to your doctor to determine the best way to control your diabetes while you are breastfeeding.
