EVERYONE’S ON EGLONYL!
Q:I hear all my new mom friends talking about Eglonyl. What is it? Should I also take it when my baby is born? It seems everyone is.
A:Kwena answers: Eglonyl is prescribed for patients who suffer from psychiatric illnesses, such as schizophrenia. It’s recommended for people with psychotic illnesses; although, it’s not commonly used today due to the side effects it may cause. Eglonyl was recommended offlabel by some practitioners to enhance breastmilk production, which is one of its side effects. The use of Eglonyl to enhance milk production is not recommended by its manufacturers and psychiatrists. They advise against it because it appears in breastmilk and its safety in babies is unknown. Eglonyl can also sedate both the mother and infant, which makes it dangerous when a mother co-sleeps with her baby.
