What about breast feeding while taking opiates long-term?
Opiates have been found to cross over into breast milk when taken long term. Stephanie Greene, an American nurse found out the hard way when her baby died from opiate overdose. Stephanie is now serving a 20-year sentence in an American prison. We do not want this to happen to Canadian women. Please choose an alternate form of feeding your baby (i.e. formula), or request Narcan Nasal Spray. If you are taking opioids and benzodiazepines together, these are a DEADLY combination as many have found out through first-hand experience.
