Breastfeeding with Hydrocodone

Patient: I had my wisdom teeth out on Saturday and they gave me hydrocodone but the last one I took was yesterday at 1 pm. Is it ok now for me to nurse my 16 month old?

Symptoms: None just breast soreness from not nursin

Doctor: Hello,There is no need to stop breast feeding.You may continue feeding your little one. Steroids do not cause harm to the infants at considerable doses, even when a nursing mother is consuming it daily. The effect could be reduced lactation and no harmful effects have been reported with the infants so far.In your case it was only one dose, so nothing much to worry.Regards
