Lecithin treatment for recurrent plugged ducts

Lecithin has been recommended to combat recurrent plugged ducts.
The usual recommended dosage for recurrent plugged ducts is 3600-4800 mg lecithin per day, or 1 capsule (1200 milligram) 3-4 times per day.

After a week or two with no blockage, mom can reduce the dosage by one capsule.
If there is no blockage within another 2 weeks she can reduce it again by one.

Mom may need to continue taking 1-2 capsules per day if stopping the lecithin leads to additional plugged ducts.

Lecithin is a very common food additive, and is found naturally in many other foods. There are no known contraindications to its use by breastfeeding mothers.
