:roll:
the answer mentioned is bromocriptine,
but i feel that tight bra and limiting fluid intake is a much safer option,
can anyone shed more light on this......

Hey cache,

Tight bra has its own complications...


  #7

breast milk production is due to prolactin and we need to suppress that if the female doesnot desires to breast feed...tight bra and limiting fluid in not going to be of much help...

there was 1 Q in usmle world which states that bromocriptine is no longer approved for milk suppression

answer given is tight bra & ice packs

Bromocriptine for post partum lactation suppression is not recommended. There have been several reports in the literature recently in which bromocriptine has been associated with fatal myocardial infarction and severe cerebrovascular accidents in the postpartum period in mothers taking bromocriptine for ablactation
