Can I use Tylox if I am breastfeeding?

If you are breastfeeding, your doctor will be cautious about prescribing Tylox (acetaminophen and oxycodone) for you. This drug, which is used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain on an as-needed basis, contains oxycodone, an opioid (narcotic) pain reliever that passes into breast milk. If you do take Tylox and you're breastfeeding, you should take it for only a short time; your doctor will need to monitor your baby closely.
