I suffer from chronic migraines after meningitis. I take Morphine for chronic pain daily and probably will have to for the rest of my life.
It was a concern while I was pregnant and we went into a good deal of research before deciding to breastfeed. I even had the hospital check my milk to see what percentage of my medication would be passed along.
There was only incredibly low traces of medication detected in my breastmilk at all. I probably take a much higher dossage than you would of hydracodone in a day than you would in a week.
While I wouldn't run rampant and give yourself an addiction problem, your body is very good at protecting your baby.
If your worried try getting your milk tested.
P.S Baby had no problems with withdrawal after birth either, the body is a marvellous thing.
