  • I was put on pain meds for my c-section pain and I nursed. We didn't have any problems.

  • I took vicodin for an epidural injury and had no problems. I still take it here & there. I always take less than what they tell me to take b/c I hate the way it makes me feel. I had surgery last month & was on pain meds in recovery also.

  • I took pain meds for my c-section. we were both fine but I only took them for 4 days cause I don't like taking meds, and I did not want my baby to get any of that...even if they say its okay

  • Yes. Most are safe if taken AS DIRECTED. Do you have a concern about a specific med?
