Can I use Roxicodone if I am breastfeeding?

In most cases, doctors won't prescribe Roxicodone (oxycodone) to a woman who is breastfeeding. Oxycodone, the active ingredient in Roxicodone, can pass into breast milk and be consumed by a nursing infant. When the baby stops getting the drug in breast milk, he could develop withdrawal symptoms, such as problems with sleeping and feeding, weight loss and seizures. If you're breastfeeding, tell your doctor before using Roxicodone.
