Can I take phentermine while breastfeeding?

User Profile
I am over weight and have been since the birth of my first daughter. I took phentermine before I found out I was pregnant with my second child. I want to continue taking it after this pregnancy, but I decided to breast feed. Can I take phentermine while breastfeeding? Will it get into my breastmilk?
