Strep Throat during Pregnancy

Oxycodone is also known as: Dazidox, ETH-Oxydose, Endocodone, M-Oxy, Oxecta, OxyContin, OxyIR, Oxydose, Oxyfast, Percolone, Roxicodone, Roxicodone Intensol

Oxycodone Pregnancy Warnings

Oxycodone has been assigned to pregnancy category B by the FDA. Some combination products that contain oxycodone [such as Percocet (R) and Tylox(R)] are assigned to pregnancy category C. Use of narcotic analgesics in late pregnancy is associated with the risk of neonatal withdrawal. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Oxycodone should only be given during pregnancy when there are no alternatives and benefit outweighs risk.

Oxycodone Breastfeeding Warnings

Oxycodone is excreted into human milk. However, the clinical significance in regard to breast-fed infants is unknown.
