Are there any momma’s out their taking Methotrexate while breastfeeding for RA?

Ashley Perkins 2 Rep.

I was wondering if anyone has taken Methotrexate while still breastfeeding for Rheumatoid Arthritis.  My baby is not ready to stop breastfeeding.

    Hi there, I hope some mothers will come forward to share with you. If you haven’t already come across it there is comprehensive information about methotrexate and breastfeeding in Hale’s Medications and Mothers’ Milk 2014 or online (with a subscription) at Medsmilk. There is also some information online about compatibility of this drug with breastfeeding on the infantrisk forumse-lactancia and lactmed (enter methotrexate in the search field). There’s also a little excerpt about medications from Dr Jack Newman’s Guide to Breastfeeding in Breastfeeding and Rheumatoid Arthritis but methotrexate isn’t mentioned.
