Neurological disease that causes excessive sleepiness and uncontrollable fits of sleep at any time of day.
It is recommended to breastfeed lying down horizontally, do not bathe the baby alone or with the baby in the bathtub and usually carry her in a pram better than in the arms. Bed sharing is not advisable.
Pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding and newborn care may worsen sleepiness.
The safest medications during lactation are fluoxetine, sodium oxybate and methylphenidate, rather than the Armodafinil and modafinil (see specific data sheets of these drugs).
Suggestions made at e-lactancia are done by APILAM team, and are based on updated scientific publications. It is not intended to replace the relationship you have with your doctor but to compound it.
Your contribution is essential for this service to continue to exist. We need the generosity of people like you who believe in the benefits of breastfeeding.
