Is it safe to take oxycontin while pregnant or breastfeeding?

Yes: Most, if not all, pain meds are considered safe in pregnancy and post-partum to provide pain relief for the mom. However, we know that small amounts of the drug cross the placenta or pass into the breast milk, so the question isn't really if Oxycontin is safe to take, but is it necessary to take. There are other, less potent meds that will provide adequate pain relief without medicating the baby. ...Read more

Perhaps discuss changing the OxyContin to Nucynta (tapentadol)ER with Nucynta (tapentadol) immediate release for use as needed for breakthrough pain. Nucynta (tapentadol) has less side effects (especially in the gut) and that might be a benefit for you. Hope that helps! ...Read more
