Can I Breast Feed After Taking Morphine

i jus had a baby so i am still breast feeding but last night i had a pain in my chest and was given morphine,can i still breast feed with the drug still in my system?

Answer

According to the PDR, morphine is "probably safe" to use when breastfeeding, so occasional use is probably not a big problem. However, if you need to take morphine on a regular basis, I would recommend talking to your baby's pediatrician.
