Gabapentin and breastfeeding
If your doctor or health visitor says your baby is healthy, you can take gabapentin while breastfeeding. It’s important to keep taking gabapentin to keep you well.
Gabapentin passes into breast milk in small amounts. It has not been known to cause any side effects in breastfed babies.
If your baby is not feeding as well as usual, seems unusually sleepy, has a stomach upset, or if you have any other concerns about your baby, talk to your doctor, pharmacist, health visitor or midwife.
Gabapentin and fertility
There’s no evidence to suggest that taking gabapentin reduces fertility in either men or women. However, discuss your pregnancy plans with a doctor. They may wish to review your medicine and prescribe a higher dose of folic acid for you to take (5mg a day) before you become pregnant.
Speak to a pharmacist or your doctor before taking gabapentin if you’re trying to get pregnant.
