Question: My wife who is still breastfeeding is advised to take below medicines from gynaecologist based on her annual health checkup reports. Our daughter is at present 1.8 year old.

1. Depura liquid 60k(Vitamin D) - one a week for 3 months and then once in a month of 3 months.
2. Calcimax till she is continues to breastfeed the baby.
3. Absolut Woman tablet for 3 months.

Is the above tablets/liquids safe to take while breast feeding for baby? I read that the breast feeding women should not take Absolut Woman tablet. Please provide your inputs on this.
