Hydrocodone for pregnant women

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone for pregnant women

vicodin

Avatar f tn Honey, I can see you are anxious for an answer, but there is so much to this issue that it's hard to know where to begin. For one, most pregnant women would not take anything without discussing it with their doctor. Yet you say her mother is giving her codeine on the side? For another, it sounds like she is more concerned with getting caught than being healthy for the baby ... even if she stops, will she be going back onto unprescribed codeine when the baby is born?
Avatar f tn will thay Really take her baby away if he has that in his sistym its just a pain pill rite pregnant women do get pain i think that would be awful
Avatar f tn MommaQ, you have a tough situation on your hands. The standard of care for opioid dependent pregnant women is to use methadone or buprenorphine (Suboxone). BUT I would NOT recommend either in your case, as the dose of opioid you are taking is MUCH lower than the effects of buprenorphine. In fact, taking Suboxone would be like taking 15 or more Vicodin (hydrocodone) tablets per day!
Avatar f tn is worse for a pregnant women 2 come off opiates whike pregnant bcuz that can cause problems with development and miscarriage ..in ca its illegal for.dr 2.
Avatar f tn CT whilst pregnant is generally an unwise and reckless endeaver, especially during the first trimester when opioid withdrawal could trigger uterine contractions leading to spontaneous abortion/miscarriage. I accept that both you and the baby have suffered no ill effects from your CT attempt but I would urge you to consult a medical professional before making any more changes to your daily narcotic regimen.
Avatar f tn I have been taking hydros thru the whole pregnancy but no more than 2 a day! If I stop by 30 weeks will the hydrocodone be in the baby's system when he is born? How long does the hydrocodone stay in the baby's system? When should I stop taking them? I'm 28 weeks pregnant now! How does Texas test newborns? Please help I'm scared!
485259 tn?1519047026 The website says it contains sugar and diabetics should be cautious when taking it, along with women that may be pregnant. It also states, Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with Emetrol Solution. However, no specific interactions with Emetrol Solution are known at this time. So again that you for posting this information. For those of us that fight nausea it may be beneficial. And as you said everyone should consult with their PCP before taking any OTC medication.
Avatar f tn Does anyone out there have any advice for pregnant women coping with hydrocodone withdrawal?
Avatar f tn I am 5 weeks pregnant and have fibromyaglia and yesterday i got rearended. Wrentched my neck. I have a pain specialist and my ob knows. I take 1a day. 2 at the most. What do you know about this med and early pregnanacy?
Avatar f tn And to try to take yourself off of a drug like that while pregnant is dangerous, and can also cause huge problems for the baby. It must be done under Dr. supervision. I cannot stress enough how very important it is to tell your Dr. Today. Now. Do not wait. You say you are doing it this way for fear of CPS involvment. Let me tell you, the way you are doing this should scare you a whole lot more...
Avatar f tn t feel like it is healthy for my baby.. Has any one been through this while pregnant?? I go back to work in 3 weeks and there's no way I can work with this much kidney pain!!
Avatar f tn I see a ton of pregnant women working at maternity stores. I think it's very smart to have women with child working in places like that. I also have seen women at drug stores, Babies R Us, or maybe another daycare?
Avatar f tn I live in Tennessee. My job post is actually a sitting down position except for rounds I have to make every hour... Outside. I thought about working at a call center, think I'll look into that. I am also concerned about job security switching jobs but I will likely keep my current job but I WILL need a part time one also so that I'm not living check to check. Thanks for all the suggestions!
Avatar f tn Hi, I was just wondering if anyone could answer this to me, Ive been addicited to hydrocodone (Perks mostly and oxys) for a couple years now, it never was so bad until after I had my first son, and was taking some for pain, During my sons pregnancy I was only taking about 5mgs a day everyday for the first like 6 months and then stopped, And he was born completly healthy, But since hes been born ive been doing a prescription of 40 perks in a couple days, Im currently pregnant with my second baby
Avatar f tn its actually illigal for a dr 2 lower doses or take pregnant women off of opiates they r prescribed in c.a....
Avatar f tn When you go to medical school you learn that and that you shouldnt treat pregnant women any difrent then non. Yea things are more dificult but we asked for it. We need to do things ourself we should be able to do anything we could before. Speacil treatment is unneeded. If you cant stand in line that is your problem and not everyone elses you need to figure out ways around it.
Avatar f tn I am currently 24 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child. I have been taking hydrocodone 10/325 for the last 2 months, 2-3 a day. I am worried if I am harming my unborn baby in anyway. I have read a ton of posts on this site about vicodin use during pregnancy and all say to taper down during the last trimester so the baby will not be born addicted. Also, with me taking this amount for the last 2 months, will my withdrawal symptoms be severe?
Avatar f tn t understand why you switched from suboxone to subutex just because you became pregnant. Since you were already on suboxone, there is no risk. They only start pregnant women on subutex to avoid a possibility of precipitated withdrawal, but once on the Buprenorphine they usually switch pregnant women back to suboxone once they are on a stabilized dose.
Avatar f tn He prescribed me hydrocodone and Tylenol 3 mix when I was pregnant with my daughter for a kidney infection. I refused to take it. So please let us know how well this works for you.
