How long will hydrocodone affect my breastmilk? I had surgery on my ACL and was prescribed 5mg. When will it be out of my system so I can breastfee?

Narcotic/breastfeed: You do not need to stop breast feeding if you are on small doses of hydrocodone. As long as your 24 hour intake is less than 30mg, there should be minimal effect on the baby - a little drowsiness may occur, not as vigorous feeding. However, if you really want no exposure and want to pump and dump, it will clear from your system and milk in 48 hours. I would keep nursing! (good luck with your knee). ...Read more

Modern testing can detect adulteration of the sample or people taking in large amounts of liquids to "flush" it out or put the concentration of drug way down. ...Read more

How quickly could I get 15mgs of hydrocodone out of my system?

Depends on what you: Mean by "out of my system." I suspect you are being drug tested, and that is your concern. Firstly, you can't get it out any faster with any known technique (like drinking tons of water etc.). Your liver will metabolize it and your kidneys excrete it at their own pace. In general, the hydrocodone itself is gone within 4-6 hours from your bloodstream, but the metabolites can stick around 3-4 days. ...Read more

Worry more about that than getting caught and you will be better off. ...Read more
