Can I use Zydone if I am breastfeeding?

If you are breastfeeding, you should not take Zydone (hydrocodone and acetaminophen), a drug prescribed to relieve moderate to moderately severe pain. Acetaminophen can pass into breast milk, although doctors are not sure what, if any, effect it might have on a nursing infant. Doctors are not certain if hydrocodone, a narcotic analgesic, passes into breast milk, but it might harm a nursing infant if it does.

Your doctor may recommend that you don't take Zydone if you are breastfeeding or that you wean your baby before taking Zydone.
