Hi, new here!
I had surgery yesterday and the 5mg/325 oxycodone is simply not working to control my pain. I'm curious as to why there's a 30mg max per day dose while breastfeeding. I know it can affect him, that's not what I mean. When he was 3 months old I had another surgery and the 5mg definitely affected him. He was extra sleepy; not difficult to wake or missing feeding but it definitely made him more sleepy. Now, the 5mg doesn't affect him at all. Perhaps that's because he's eating more food and not breastfeeding as often, but I think it also has to do with him being bigger now (he's 20lbs). Basically, I'm curious why I can't take more than 30mg er 24 hours if it doesn't seem to affect him. I don't want to give him formula as he's never had any, and also because my older son (2years) had a terrible time with formula... It made him severely constipated. So I'm afraid to give him any.
I used up all my extra pumped milk with other surgeries I've had so I don't have any extra left. But I can't handle this pain its terrible. Any advice is appreciated.
