Breatfeeding & Percocet, Flexeril, & Celebrex
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. Or if you know someones story to share I would be forever grateful. Just in case someone needs to know my daughter that is being nursed is only 3 weeks old. Thanks and I look forward to hearing for you!
I was told celebrex and flexeril was a no no by my ob and by the pediatrician. I was on it for several years and stopped it when I got pregnant and was told I could not resume taking it until after baby was weaned. Im not sure about the other meds. Sorry I can't be of more help.
