If I am pregnant, is it safe to use Tylox?

If you're pregnant, it's likely that your doctor will not prescribe Tylox (acetaminophen and oxycodone) for you. The oxycodone in Tylox, which is prescribed to treat moderate to moderately severe pain, is an opioid (narcotic) pain reliever. Although there are no conclusive studies showing that Tylox can hurt a developing fetus, it is known that babies of moms who took a narcotic during pregnancy can be born with a dependency on the drug. A pregnant woman should take Tylox only if the benefits to her outweigh the potential risk to her developing fetus.
