From the Tallahassee (FL) Democrat:
FDA warning upsets some nursing moms
Doreen Fisher eats organic food, doesn't touch red meat and tries to avoid taking medication. But when it comes to breast-feeding her son, she makes an exception.

"I don't even take an aspirin," says Fisher, 36. "But that's how passionate I feel about breast-feeding my child."

Because of a hormonal condition that limits her natural milk production, Fisher takes domperidone, which she says has enabled her to breast-feed her 8-month-old son, Stone.

"It's worked wonderfully, and I've never seen any side effects," says Fisher, who orders the drug from a pharmacy overseas. "I don't know what I would do without it."
