taking migraine or headache drugs when breastfeeding

Women with migraine may be concerned about breastfeeding due to fears of exposing the baby to medication.

However, many medications can be safely taken during breastfeeding, including acetaminophen (Tylenol), anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen (Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve), and sumatriptan (Imitrex).
