Brief Answer:
Hi, you can take it.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for writing to us.

Levocetrizine is only acceptable occasionally in very low doses in breast feeding mother.
If you are taking it in higher doses then it may cause drowsiness in your baby and decrease milk supply.

In my opinion if you are having very severe cold then you can take certizine in low doses.
You should drink a lot of water ( XXXXXXX warm).
You can take steam inhalation alone or with karvol plus.
Take vitamin c tablet.

I think I have answered your query if you have further questions I will be happy to help you.

Good luck.
Regards
Dr. Richa

hi i have a newborn she is 3 weeks old. she is breastfed and feeds often with many wet nappies per day. she poos on average only every 2nd day. a few days ago her weight confirmed she has put on almost 500gms in 1 week. Howover the last 24 hours she has been very unsettled, with a bloated tummy which has been making alot of loud gurgling noises all day, accompanied by 3 soiled nappies but only lightly soiled with very watery yellow poo. she keeps wanting to feed but it seems only for comfort as her tummy seems very full and hard. she sounds like she is constantly straining which makes her bring up small amounts of milk even as long as 40mins after a feed. what do you think is wrong with her and what should i do to settle her if she is already full?

hi, my baby always seems whingey and has now going of all his milk feeds what do you think it could be? he also fell backwards yesterday and worried about whiplash, he slept more than usual last night and woke up not taking his feeds, but he went of them before all this happened. He has also started weaning, maybe he has no need for milk?

my son is 7 weeks old. He has this white pimple on top of his nose for about a week, what could it be, I hope it s not something serious. I do have gential herpes, I did deliver my son naturally, they said they didn t see anything. I am breastfeeding. They gave me valacyclovirif I feel like I m having a breakout I would take it. When I feel like I m having a breakout I will get itchy. He would only get something if I had it on my nipple, I never did.should I stop breastfeeding or just get a pump and do both. It looks like a regular white hear, but why would it be there for a week.. Please help. Thank you
