I DON'T WANT TO WEAN-but my body does...

Emotionally I am not ready to wean my baby. He just turned 15 months and it has been a struggle since I went back to work. My body just does not produce unless it is attached to a baby or I'm pumping non stop. He only nurses morning and night, or if I'm home on the weekends. He's okay with this, but if I refuse him he gets upset. So he's not really ready either. However, I just don't have much milk. I pump while I'm away and take domperidone. If I didn't take the med I'm not sure I'd have any milk. But the domperidone has made me gain a ton of weight and makes my stomach hurt. I want to go on a rapid weight loss diet at my dr's office that uses meds. I wouldn't try it but the weight has my blood pressure up and my feet are swelling...it needs to come off. But the meds aren't great for breastfeeding. What would you do? If I stop taking the dom and stop pumping and only allow him to comfort nurse he won't be getting much milk at all...maybe 2-3 oz a day. Would that be low enough to not worry about the meds transferring to the milk?
