Re: Ativan

  • Lots will say no, but look it up on LactMed. It's the safest of the anxiety meds you can use. My pedi and dr approved it when I was nursing. My DS did great. Watch for signs of crankiness/drowsiness. Of course approve it with the pedi. LactMed is a trustworthy source :)

    Drug Name:Lorazepam
    ******************************************
    Lorazepam has low levels in breastmilk, a short half-life relative to many other benzodiazepines, and is safely administered directly to infants. Evidence from nursing mothers indicates that lorazepam does not cause any adverse effects in breastfed infants with usual maternal dosages. No special precautions are required.
