I have been prescribed Colchicine for treatment of my oral lichen planus condition. However, I am still nursing / breastfeeding my one year old child. I am wondering if the medication is safe to consume given that I am still nursing my child?

If not, is there any alternative treatment / medication that I can suggest to my oral medicine specialist?

Also, can I practise “Pump and Dump” if I want to continue nursing and yet continue with the medication? Assuming the dosage frequency is once a day, I will nurse my child in the morning first before I consume Colchicine, then I express my milk and dump them through the day, and only continue nursing my child 6 – 8 hours after the last dosage in the morning. Is this do-able?
