... still breast feeding my 9month old
Here's what the FDA says:
Acetaminophen / hydrocodone Breastfeeding Warnings
There are no data on the excretion of hydrocodone into human milk. Other narcotic analgesics are excreted into human milk in small amounts. Acetaminophen is excreted into human milk in small concentrations. One case report of an adverse effect (involving a rash) has been reported in nursing infants. Acetaminophen is considered to be compatible with breast-feeding by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Hello Dnisha - I am providing you a "quote" below regarding the fact that it DOES pass into breast milk. Is it worth the potential risk? Here is the quote:
"This medication passes into breast milk and may rarely have undesirable effects on a nursing infant. Tell the doctor immediately if your baby develops unusual sleepiness, difficulty feeding, or trouble breathing. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding."
There it is... short and sweet. It was the last statement under "precautions" for the material I read.
