Hello, Mrs. Henny Maulidah. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com.
The drug brand that you mentioned is classified as an herbal medicine. Unfortunately, research that studies the safety of using this product in nursing mothers is still very limited. Therefore, there are no objective scientific data to establish safe limits on use in nursing mothers and the risk of side effects to the baby.
Mothers are recommended to consult with a doctor or a specialist doctor before using medicinal products during lactation. Do not hesitate to consult a nutrition specialist if you want to plan a nutrition program to increase your weight in a healthy way.
At home, mothers are encouraged to consume balanced nutritious foods regularly, by increasing their intake of protein foods such as fish and chicken meat; olarhraga regularly, and adequate rest. To enrich insight, you can read articles on tips to increase weight.
