Can I use pregabalin while breastfeeding?

Experts do not know whether pregabalin is passed to your baby through your breast milk. Until more information is available on the safety of pregabalin during nursing, you should either stop nursing or stop taking pregabalin. Before you make this important decision, talk with your doctor. Ask about alternatives to pregabalin, and make sure you understand why you may need to stay on pregabalin. This way, when you make your decision, you will have as much information as possible and will make the best choice for you and your baby.
