Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone pregnancy


492921 tn?1321289896 I would call your OB. hydrocodone is actually considered safe during pregnancy, but should only be taken with knowledge and direction of your OB. But it is considered safe in small, monitored doses. Just give them a call and tell them what's going on... they should have someone who can call you tonight.
Avatar f tn Anyone have experience taking this during pregnancy? It was prescribed by my Ob for my cracked tooth. It hurts!
Avatar f tn Have you spoken with your doctor about this? I know a few women that have taken hydrocodone throughout pregnancy. The doctor basically decides that the benefits of the medicine for the mother outweigh the risks to the baby. Your doctor could guide you into making the best decision, and also if you did need to taper off in the last trimester, give you a reasonable schedule for doing so. I went a completely different route with my baby, I had been on opiates for way longer than 2 months.
Avatar m tn I am totally scared right now. I have took hydrocodone a few times will being pregnant. I have not told anyone about this. I only took them a few times for pain I was having in my lower back. The problem is, I am now 33 weeks pregnant and starting to become scared about it. The last time I took them was when I was 31 weeks. Like I said, I was not taking daily. Just every now and then I would take a couple to take away the pain.I don't know what to do.

Avatar f tn The doctor put me on hydrocodone 5/325 for pain and said it wont cross the placenta, and its safe for the baby. Has anyone else had to take this while being pregnant.
Avatar n tn You probably mean hydrocodone or something similar. Commonly used, and good medication for pain that can accompany kidney stones. Used all the time for such conditions at your gestation. If your pain is not improving or getting worse, you should let your doctor know right away.
Avatar f tn I have been taking hydrocodone under a doctor's care throughout my pregnancy. I am due any day now and take 30mg, how likely is it that my baby will experience withdrawals? Particularly severe withdrawals? I've heard so many mixed reviews...
Avatar n tn I have had a lot of pain (some very severe) with this pregnancy and my new doctor refuses to give me hydrocodone (or offer me any kind of help for the pain) even though I have been told that it is perfectly safe to take during pregnancy. I don't know what to do. Is there anything that i can do to help me through this pregnancy?
Avatar f tn My best friend has been pregnant for 28 weeks and has been taking hydrocodone illegally for the entire pregnancy. Shes been struggling to stop and she's cut down to a half a day because she's trying to quit. I keep urging her to stop and I just recently found outthey drug test newborns in arkansas. Is this all newborns? Will it be in the babies system of she stops now? will they take her baby from her? I would hate to see that happen to her. Please answer ASAP.
Avatar m tn Hydrocodone is safe during pregnancy, that being said, i wouldn't take it without a prescription tho. Your dr should know everything you are taking.
Avatar f tn Im 29 weeks pregnant taking hydrocodone occassionally for pain. Ive weaned myself off is my baby still suseptable to withdrawl?
Avatar f tn Hydrocodone is safe during pregnancy so long as it's not taken for a long period of time. I have taken the hydrocodone 7/500 tabs with this pregnancy due to severe back and hip pain. I also took it for a wisdom tooth removal with one of my other pregnancies.
1778305 tn?1314483931 Hi! I'm 32 years old and 6 weeks pregnant. My dr has me on 5mg oxycodone 5-6 times a day for degenerative disc in my neck. I've been on this medication for 3.5 years. I know this medication shouldn't be used in late pregnancy because the risk of withdrawal is very high. I'm so worried that although my dr says this med isn't hurting my baby...it is. Any real life stories or advise would be greatly appreciated. Please don't judge me and leave unhelpful comments at the door.
Avatar f tn s mom has lupus and I know how much it hurts her) but you really want to work with them throughout this pregnancy to stay healthy. hydrocodone (in monitored, managed doses) is considered fairly safe and not a miscarriage or birth defect risk. the only risk it DOES carry is that it can make the baby sleepy, and obviously a baby of a mother who takes it regularly will become dependent and require monitoring and treatment after delivery.
Avatar f tn Normal use of opioids to treat pain associated with needed surgery or injury that occurs during pregnancy is relatively safe. Hydrocodone is listed in pregnancy category C for typical brief use for acute pain. This means that available evidence indicates there is a slightly increased, but ill-defined, risk of birth defects when it is used legitimately. Some studies have shown a slightly increased risk of heart abnormalities.
1839856 tn?1318553457 I took Hydrocodone throughout my entire pregnancy. I started tapering down around 34 weeks so my son would not be effected at birth. He is healthy and weighed almost 9lbs at birth. I have a very bad back and it didn't get any better during my pregnancy. I can honestly say quitting anything cold turkey during pregnancy is never a good idea. The stress of the withdrawls as well as the stress from the pain can cause you to miscarry.
Avatar f tn Youd honestly have to take hydrocodone for your whole pregnancy before your chances of yur baby coming out addicted is a possibility.i was prescribed hydrocodone and i took it as needed, i know some people get addicted but you dont sound like the type anyway. Tylenol is another pain pill you can take...
2026826 tn?1445955247 I was taking a very high dose of norco, which is 10 mg of hydrocodone up until the morning of my c section and my son had very little withdrawals. The nurse said he was doin the sucking thing but it might not have been the withdrawals. he was very quiet and smiled all the time. I wish you the best.
783714 tn?1237997265 The highest risk for continued use is that your baby may have withdrawal symptoms after birth, but these can usually be easily treated. Decreasing the amount of hydrocodone during the pregnancy should not cause your baby any problems.
