default
Posted on Fri, 3 Jun 2016 in Drug Abuse
Question: My wife and I had a child 6 months ago. We use a combination of breast feeding and formula for his diet. My wife has only drank twice over the 15 month period 9 months pregnancy plus 6 months. We are going to a show next week and wanted to take XXXXXXX which is a pure form of mdma or ecstasy? If we were to take such a substance how long before she could breastfeed our child and it would be safe? What about cocaine? We want to know these things before we do anything that is detrimental to our child's well being.

Brief Answer:
Consultation

Detailed Answer:
It is absolutely NOT safe to take MDMA, XXXXXXX ecstasy, or cocaine while breastfeeding. These substances stay in the body for quite some time and are transferable to your baby via breast milk. Your wife needs to abstain from these substances.
