    Default Percocet

    Hi ladies,

    I have a question i'm not sure if any of you can help me out with. I got a procedure done on my gums and teeth and was prescribed percocet. I didn't even look at the prescription or mention to my dentist that I was still breastfeeding (totally slipped my mind). I haven't taken any yet, but I am in a fair bit of pain and was wondering if anyone knew it was safe. I couldn't get ahold of my dentist and one doctor said it was fine and the other said it wasn't! Talk about lack of knowledge when it comes to breastfeeding DD is 13.5 months old if that makes any difference. In the past I have taken Tylenol 4's for migraines with no effect at all on her but I know the composition is different.

    Thanks for any help!

    This is what I found:

    The acetaminophen (Tylenol®) component of Percocet passes through breast milk, but it is not likely to cause problems (see Tylenol and Breastfeeding). However, the oxycodone component is a narcotic and could cause significant problems in a nursing infant. Percocet is often used to treat pain after delivering a baby, and many healthcare providers are comfortable recommending it for this use. However, it is a good idea to watch for any changes in your baby, such as breathing problems, excessive sleeping, or feeding problems, if you take Percocet while breastfeeding.

    IN all sincerity, with Kim. It' s a Level 3 so be mindful but you'll likely be okay.

    Okay, that's exactly why I opened it! But then I saw it was serious and felt it was my civic duty to be mindful of my humor.
