methargine

help me ## Methergine was prescribed for me for migraines to contract the blood vessels (a vasoconstrictor), prescribed by the Michigan Head Pain and Neurological Institute in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Methergine injection= low milk supply?

received a methergine shot after delivery for hemorrhaging, never got much breast milk. Is it because of this? ## Hello, Kate! How are you? Congrats on the baby!

Did you have the methergine yourself? Most lactation consultants seem to know little about it. I struggled to breastfeed, and I was always just told that the methergine would be out of my system by now. I don't know if it had long term effects on me bc it was introduced before my milk even “came in".
