Ask your doctor if there are any activities, medications or foods you should avoid while on mannitol. Since the effects on breast milk are not known, don't breastfeed while on the drug. The effect of mannitol on the developing fetus has not been studied in pregnant women or animals, therefore avoid pregnancy. Mannitol can make you feel faint or dizzy, so don't drive a car or participate in hazardous activities until you know how mannitol will affect you personally.
