Percocet in first trimester

Common Questions and Answers about Percocet in first trimester


I, myself, would try not to take anything <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> as that is the most critical time <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> development but I also do not have arthritis or anything like that. If your OB said it was OK then you should probably trust her/his opinion or call your pharmacist and ask them.
I feel terrible I didn't know I was pregnant and now worry that I may have to have an abortion. Does abusing narcotics <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> affect the baby if I stop immediately. I am currently 10wks pregnant.
Being as it is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your 3rd <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> it is less likely to have an affect on the baby HOWEVER there is always a chance that it could. I believe percocet is considered relatively safe after the first trimester. Your baby may or may not go thru withdrawals but depending on the amount of medication you take it probably won't be serious. There's really no way to know for certain what the outcome will be until you have the baby.
i am 33 week and i go in this morning for a root canal they say that the third trimester is the best time to get dental work done. Because in your first your babies organs are starting to develop.
Pregnancy Category A Adequate and well-controlled studies have failed to demonstrate a risk to the fetus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> of pregnancy (and there is no evidence of risk <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> later trimesters).
do I have time to try to ween off this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span>? I would assume it's even more important to be off meds like this in the 2nd/3rd trimester than it is in the 1st? Is that a correct assumption? I have so many questions...the pregnancy is all new to me.....and so I have all sorts of questions there. And now to think about all the medication issues.....this raises even more questions.
How long would a newborn have needed to be exposed to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>percocet</span> during a pregnancy to cause withdrawals after birth? I have a family member who swears up and down she only took the small amount that was prescribed to her for back pain in the last few weeks of her pregnancy. There has been a lot of suspicion about what was really going on with her throughout the pregnancy and she was known to take opiods before getting pregnant. Now the baby has been born and is experiencing withdrawals.
I smoked pot regularly and took a 10mg percocet for a migraine headache. I am worried about the affects of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>percocet</span> since they say the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> is the most crutial. Someone help.
since it is SO early and you know what you have to do- you gotta tell your ob/gyn especially because developmentally, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> is SO important for the baby. also, for your safety and the baby's so you and your doctor can come up with the best plan. if you tell now, before it is too late, you wont get in any trouble and will get all the help you need with this sensitive situation. i use to work with women in your same position if not worse. withdrawal can sometimes hurt the baby.
It is not known whether percocet is harmful to an unborn baby, but it could cause breathing problems or addiction/withdrawal symptoms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> a newborn . Before you take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>percocet</span>, tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment. Acetaminophen and oxycodone may pass into breast milk and could harm a nursing baby. Do not use percocet without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.
i read a story here and a women was on 3 5mgs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>percocet</span> a day for 3 weeks stopped cause she thought it was a low dose n went <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> to labor 2 days later.. but she was only a week or 3 away from her due date so tech she was full term.
I don't know about being further along and taking them but I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> and second <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> and my daughter is a perfectly healthy five month old.
I was told they were safe to take during pregnancy, after the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span>. They are only supposed to harm the baby during the organ formation. However, my ob/gyn said if I quit cold turkey it would place stress on the baby, but cold turkey was better then continuing to take them past 35 weeks and delivering an addicted baby. If you start taking them again you need to inform your ob/gyn. They test the baby's stool right after delivery for any controlled substances.
I got my gaulbladder and appendix taken out at the same time <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> and my doc had me on percocet...I had the same concerns but I trusted my doc and here I am at 27wks with a healthy girl so far. But sounds like what you been through doesn't even compare, I honestly don't know what to say.
However its best to avoid ANY medication in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> when the baby is still developing. If you find out you are pregnant it would be best to stop taking the painkillers alltogether. At this point it's probably best to continue to use protection until you are free of the pain meds and your doctor has given you the official go ahead.
percocet seems really strong to use just for cramping, especially at just 7 weeks. You should try to avoid any medicines <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span>, just to be on the safe side. This is because babies major developments happen in the first trimester and medicines can cause unwanted effects. I doubt you've done much damage if any, but unless you're in utter agony (which would in itself represent something more serious) you probably wouldn't need them.
The hydrocodone I was taking a couple every couple of days in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> and second <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span>. .sometimes I went several days without anything.. im just curios to know if the opiates will still be in the babies system when he is born if I dont take anything else the rest of my pregnancy. .
There are some meds that are very dangerous to take, especially <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span>, it can effect how your baby forms. So, you need to let them know in case you have to stop some of your meds. I wish you the best and congragulations. This will be the beginning of a new and different life for you. It will all be worth it when you are holding your little one in your arms after it is all over. I can't begin to tell you the joy a new little one brings you.
You are taking the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> step <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> recovery by even admitting this. You and your child can have a good life if you start taking the steps now. Take care.
Hi, Yes you can be slowly weaned off of the Oxycontin. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> is the most important and you need to see your OB ASAP to find a suitable pain medication regimine since your pregnant. it is so very important to the baby.
I didn't get many headaches <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> but I'm getting them almost on a daily basis in my second trimester. they're so bad I've been throwing up and they last for days. Tylenol doesn't help at all. I'll take a zip lock bag of ice water and lay in the dark. Or I've used tiger balm but you can't use it to often. I'm desperate to find something that can help get rid of these headaches because they're debilitating.
As for the baby developing a dependancy on it, I talked to my OB about this and she said definitely NOT to quit cold turkey, especially in your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span>. Your baby is a part of your body now - imagine your 7 week old fetus having to go through what you do when you don't have a pill. The best way to make sure the baby doesn't detox is to slowly ween yourself off at the end of your second trimester/beginning of your third.
in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> I had herniated discs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my spine and they gave me hydrocodone. I was scared and only took 4 out of the bottle (I had a previous miscarriage at 13weeks), but now I'm wishing I would have taken them...they would have helped a LOT with pain!
Im a dental hygenist ur <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> second <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> u will be fine but u can take Tylenol or percocet for pain Iits safe for baby ask ur doctor I took it ..when I had surgery u hving pain is not good ...
I was on pain meds my whole <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> and part of my second. They can help you if they deem it necessary. That's assuming you can't control pain with tylenol or something stronger like a percocet or if the stone is too large to pass and/or is causing hudronephrosis. I hope you pass it though.
) If you don't HAVE to take the meds its better not..especially cause your still <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>first</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> is possibly the most important because the baby is still forming and deciding what goes where. After that its basically just maturing to get ready for birth. But don't feel bad cause I had to be on meds the whole time. My doctors told me that it was better for me to just take the pain meds if I needed them then rather stress the baby cause I was in pain.
My husband and I are concerned about the potential of me having to go on bedrest from the potential pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the last <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span>. Right now I manage the pain with steroid injections, but that won't be possible once pregnant. Has anyone with disk herniations gone full term w/o bedrest? How did you handle pain, movement, etc. Thank you.
I was prescribed Tylenol 3 with Codeine during my last pregnancy for migraine headaches. I was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my second <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>trimester</span> and took them for only a short duration. I am pregnant again and have 3 herniated disks in my back and have been prescribed Vicodin for that. I am 22 weeks along now, so I think if you take the meds in moderation, for a short period of time, and after your first trimester you should be fine.
