I hear different answers, also what dose is allowable for breast feeding?
Buprenorphine has been assigned to pregnancy category C by the FDA. This means that animal studies have shown evidence of fetal harm but there are no studies in humans. Buprenorphine use during pregnancy has been associated with neonatal withdrawal symptoms.
You should talk with your doctor to see what is best for both you and your baby.
Buprenorphine is excreted into human milk. The manufacturer recommends against breast-feeding during buprenorphine therapy.It would be safer for your baby to bottle feed.
