RP 10 Pills In Pregnancy and lactation

Pregnancy: There are limited data from the use of oxycodone in pregnant women. Infants born to mothers who have received opioids during the last 3 to 4 weeks before giving birth pregnancy should be monitored for respiratory depression.

Withdrawal symptoms may be observed in the newborn of mothers undergoing treatment with oxycodone.

No studies on fertility or the post-natal effects of intrauterine exposure have been carried out. However, studies in rats and rabbits with oral doses of oxycodone equivalent to 3 and 47 times an adult dose of 160 mg/day, respectively, did not reveal evidence of harm to the foetus due to oxycodone. Oxycodone injection is not recommended for use in pregnancy nor during labour.

Breastfeeding: Oxycodone may be secreted in breast milk and may cause respiratory depression in the newborn. Oxycodone should therefore not be used in breast-feeding mothers.
