Real Questions, Real Answers From Dr.Benchetrit – Botox during pregnancy or breasfeeding ??

Is Non-cosmetic Botox (For Migraines) Safe During Breastfeeding? I have discontinued use during pregnancy (and have been very ill since it wore off). Breastfeeding is a priority to me, however it would be very challenging to have daily migraines while caring for an infant. Is it safe to resume Botox after the baby is born and still breastfeed?

“Botox treatments are not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding because there are no studies showing its safety. You should ask your physician to recommend other safe medications for migraine treatments until you finish breastfeeding. I hope this was helpful.”
