  • FDA pregnancy category C. Percocet may be harmful to an unborn baby, and could cause breathing problems or addiction/withdrawal symptoms in a newborn. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment. Percocet may pass into breast milk and could harm a nursing baby. Do not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

    A few probably will be fine. Percocet is oxycodone and tylenol. Just don't take them for long term.

  • One headaches worth of Perks won't hurt your baby. True the baby was probably very mellow for awhile, but as long as you don't make it a habit, I think you're fine.

  • When i was pregnant and had migraines my OBGYN put me on demerol....I only took them when I absolutely needed them- your dr. will not give you anything if they think it will be harmful to baby!
