Let me advise you: Perccet compose of two medications. Oxycodone&acetaminophen however, the oxycodone component is a narcotic and could cause significant problems in a nursing infant. If you have to take it is a good idea to watch for any changes in your baby, such as breathing problems, excessive sleeping, or feeding problems. The manufacturer does not recommend that women use this medication while breastfeed.
