Percocet and nursing

Common Questions and Answers about Percocet and nursing


Avatar m tn Percocet is not a good med for migraines, generally speaking. Have you tried fiorect or something of the like? That is what I use while pg for my migranes. As far as the percocet, you really need to watch that. I have a bad back, bad enough to get me out of nursing after the injury. While pg, I tend to "throw" it out worse due to the excess weight and looser joints. I was given the okay for percocet only after entering my third trimester and only for short term use.
Avatar n tn I just looked Percocet up and it is a B/D meaning that if used early and not often it may not harm your fetus but if used often or at Full Term it can cause serious harm. My personal opinion would be to tell your doctor - you are being responsible for even talking about it and be sure not to use it anymore. ** FYI - I have a prescription for Zanex for Anxiety which I hardly ever take. My script lasts me 3 years. I only have an attack maybe 2 to three times a year.
Avatar f tn It's probably more dangerous to have the high blood pressure associated with severe migraines than to take the Percocet. I suffer migraines and I'm praying that I don't get one in the next 7 1/2 months. If I do, then I'm told that that's the medication I'm supposed to take. For me, I can't just put ice on my neck and sit in a dark room. It's way too painful. Hope that helps.
Avatar f tn I took 10/325 like 8 times a day to keep up with Nursing School (what a SHAME). I decided that I want to be a good Nurse and Not use this Stuff anymore. I feel My heart rate up when ever Im doing anything around the House or any extertion. Also, Anxiety Got a tiny bit better, but is still there. I miss My husband more than ever....even if he goes to work, I feel this sick feeling that he is gone. I do feel Depress and Im crying like 2x/day.
Avatar f tn Acetaminophen and oxycodone may pass into breast milk and could harm a nursing baby. Do not use Percocet without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.
Avatar m tn I know that anything that a person takes while breastfeeding can pass through the milk to the nursing infant. Due to a severe back injury I am having to take Percocet, Flexeril, & Celebrex. The doctors say that it is ok for me to take these medications just to pay a little closer attention to my 3 week old baby. I am looking for someone that has taken one or more of there while breastfeeding and what their verdict or experience with it was.
Avatar f tn Yet right before me 23rd birthday things took a turn for the worst. I just got kicked out of nursing school and was in an abusive relationship. I was living with a man who hit me. Why I stayed for the 3 mths that I did I have no clue, I have a huge loving supportive family, a great reputation and much respect. I think that was the Main reason that I had stayed, I feel as if I didn't want anyone to know that I was not in control.
Avatar f tn All I can think about is how wonderful it would be to have a percocet right now. Being alone, and not working is brutal. I am going to school, but it isn't enough for me right now. I am extremely bored, and depressed. Is this normal to feel so depressed while going through this? By the way, my Thanksgiving dinner didn't stay in my stomach very long. I tried to eat, due to the fact that I my 22 year old daughter made the dinner herself. I didn't want her to feel bad.
Avatar n tn I go to a pain clinc where they put me on Neurontin which makes me too tired to work and tried Bio feedback which didn't work for me. The Percocet helps the pain but I feel I am addicted. Some days I feel like I need something really bad and I do not know what it is and then I realize after I take the Percocet I feel better. Sometimes I have that needing feeling during the day and want to take the medicine just to make it fo away but know I have to work.
Avatar n tn my dr. prescribes me percocet and vicodin for pain. my daughter is 6months old i breast feed her and supply her with formula. They say its safe but is it really ?
Avatar f tn i have just found out i am a month and 1 week pregnant 9months ago i was pregnant and the baby was growing in my cervix it is very rare and i almost fidnt make it and lost the baby
Avatar n tn I wouldn't take it.
Avatar f tn My drugs of choice are Percocet and Vicodin. After a legitimate injury that required extensive pain management, I continued taking the drugs for 3 years after the pain had subsided. At my max, I was taking 12 10 mg Percocet tabs and 60mg of vicodin on top of that. Because I know the dangers of Tylenol, I would often extract just the narcotics and leave the tylenol behind. Trying to quit these has been the biggest challenge of my life, and that's saying something.
960021 tn?1270666282 My life is so different today, and for that I am truly grateful. I have my family and husband back and am in nursing school chasing a dream. I could not have done all that without suboxone, AA/NA, and support groups like this forum. I decided to go on suboxone, which seems to be a unpopular method to those on this forum. But I would hope I could offer some advice and maybe sharing my experience will help someone.
2030190 tn?1329813587 I don't even know where to start I have two beautiful children and a wonderful fiance....he had a problem with percocet before I knew him....I always thought i could save him from his addiction and thought he would change for our forward two years later I had my daughter and got prescribed percocet from my csection...after my script ran out I asked my fiance to get me some off the street as I knew he could get them....we used together for four months...
Avatar n tn I had hernia surgery and was prescribed percocet 10mg.. It been 2 months and have stopped them but feeling really depressed and anxious. How long will this take to subside??? I usually half the 10mg and take half at a time. at most take 5 halfs a day..???
Avatar f tn My mom is an RN and has also had problems with prescription medications for years now. She didnt work for 5-6years during her worst times,struggling with a back injury, depression, bi-polar and other various problems. Shes started back up about 2yrs ago after getting her meds right, tons of therapy and counseling, but now she happy as Ive seen her now thats shes nursing again.
Avatar n tn After birth, the neonate may suffer severe withdrawal symptoms. Labor and Delivery PERCOCET tablets are not recommended for use in women during and immediately prior to labor and delivery due to its potential effects on respiratory function in the newborn. Nursing Mothers Ordinarily, nursing should not be undertaken while a patient is receiving PERCOCET tablets because of the possibility of sedation and/or respiratory depression in the infant.
Avatar f tn Has anyone had to deal with mastitis and or breast abscess? I had my baby last week and I've either got mastitis or breast abscesses AGAIN /: i was trying to pump but i can't deal with the pain anymore yet I'm scared to stop >< did anyone give up or stop breastfeeding/pumping? What was your outcome?
Avatar f tn I too have back and neck problems (sciatica, ruptured discs, herniated discs, pinched nerves in my neck - amongst other problems) and have been having to take vicodin and percocet for the past few years. I was to the point when I found out that I'm pregnant that I would go through withdrawls if I didn't have one. I wasn't addicted - I was dependant.
1278098 tn?1297649973 I had reconstructive knee surgery 19 months ago that left me with 8 screws, a hinge and a plate in my knee. I work in a nursing home caring for the sick elderly. I was on Perks for 3 years and have quit 32 days ago. I am having a hard time managing my pain..I take Tylonal and anti there anyone out there that has any suggestions for pain management? I am at my wits end and I will not go back to anything that is addictive.
1794671 tn?1338798991 Because many drugs are excreted in human milk and because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in nursing infants from hydrocodone and acetaminophen, a decision should be made whether to discontinue nursing or to discontinue the drug, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother.
433485 tn?1321816990 But sometimes, despite these steps, those meds will still tend to goof up the digestion, so your doc suggested some fiber and laxative type things, and so you might have luck with another rather natural type of lax pill called "Senocot," you take one pill, then the next day take another, and you'll have you a bowel movement the following day. Do not take them routinely, just kind of rotate whatever all you're doing, or you can become dependent on laxatives in general.
Avatar f tn As with other narcotic painkillers, taking Percocet shortly before delivery (especially at higher dosages) may cause some degree of impaired breathing in the mother and newborn. It is not known whether Percocet appears in breast milk, possibly harming a nursing infant. If you are breastfeeding use Percocet only under a doctor's directions.
Avatar f tn Suboxone has been used safely in both pregnancy and nursing and as long as you nurse your baby, s/he should not go through the withdrawals. Baby will wean slowly with you as you gently taper while nursing or when s/he weans down from nursing. Do communicate with your doctor or midwife so that you are on the same page. So, to reiterate, as long as you are nursing, the baby will not go into withdrawals. Good luck to you and my best wishes.
1684282 tn?1505701570 I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?
142722 tn?1281537216 I had a percocet "love affair" for 10 weeks and dr put me on suboxone not sure why he didn't do subutex. I am going to ask him on Tursday. I guess the withdrawel anxiety was to much for me even though i have lots right now any way.
Avatar f tn Also, the pharmacist told me that the baby should only be getting as much as he would from nursing and the doc's always give you some kind of narcotic after you've delivered. I also wanted to say congrats on the baby and keep me posted about your progress. It looks like we are due around the same time...You are NOT alone!!!!
Avatar n tn I had the same thing with the Yaz. I was on Yasmin and switched to Yaz and promptly gained about 5 or more pounds. No problems at all with Yasmin, and I was on it for 5 or more years. I still work out like I did on Yasmin, and I've never eaten a lot, although, the Yaz does make me hungry all the time, and I can't seem to get rid of this bloating. I spot constantly and cramp. I have another friend that is the same way.
Avatar n tn I can go on and off of high doses of percocet and it's like, no biggie, but Paxil- never again. I had to take several meds in my first viable pregnancy, and I am about 3 weeks along this time and taking Klonopin occasionally for sleep/panic. I won't be taking it probably more than today- I can handle the level of panic I get, I'm just waiting for my sleep med script to come through. But it does make me feel very guilty and scared.
