Pain Home > Darvocet and Breastfeeding
Studies on Darvocet (propoxyphene/acetaminophen) and breastfeeding show that the medication passes through breast milk in humans. Although this drug is usually considered to be compatible with breastfeeding, there have been reports of problems in nursing infants due to Darvocet, such as drowsiness and decreased breathing. Since each woman's situation is different, however, you should talk to your healthcare provider about breastfeeding and Darvocet.
