Common Questions and Answers about Suboxone pregnancy


Avatar f tn i am having a baby i am on suboxone do i need to go to rehab so i dont get dope sick
Avatar f tn Suboxone (buprenorphine plus naloxone) is generally switched to Subutex (buprenorphine alone) during pregnancy, to avoid exposing the fetus to an extra medication-- but Suboxone has not been linked to any problems with pregnancy or fetal development. The general practice is to keep a woman on buprenorphine throughout the pregnancy; in the past methadone was used, but recently things have shifted toward buprenorphine.
Avatar f tn I am just about 6 months pregnant and in the beginning of my pregnancy I took a quarter of a suboxone for pain and didn't take it again until yesterday which was another quarter of a suboxone. I am actually very worried right now. my question is, if I do not take this any longer, will it be able to be detected in myself or the babys stool when she is born? I really would like to avoid CPS.
Avatar f tn I am just about 6 months pregnant, and in the beginning of my pregnancy I did take a quarter of a suboxone for pain and have not taken it again until yesterday. I feel bd about it and wish I never did it. What I would like to know is, if I do not do this any longer, will it still be able to be found in myself or my newborn baby when she is born? my due date is june 22, 2014. I would rather not have to deal with CPS. Any advice would help. thankyou.
Avatar n tn Im on suboxone and just found out that im about 7wek pregnant will it hurt my babie if I slowly withdrew my self because my suboxone doctor cut me off without senting me to a subtex clinic and told me if I miss carried they would put me back on the list can they just cut me off like that
Avatar f tn I do not have any advice for you in regards to the taste of suboxone, but it does come in pill form I believe, so you can talk to you your prescribing physician about this problem. As to being on the Suboxone throughout your pregnancy, you do not have to be, if you choose not to.
Avatar f tn I am 6 months pregnant and have taken a quarter of a suboxone in early stages of pregnancy and have again taken a quarter of a suboxone strip. I am not going to do this again for fear for my baby and the fact that I know it was wrong, but what I would like to know is, if I no longer do this, will it be able to be detected in myself or the baby in any way when she is born? My due date is July 22, 2014. thankyou.
Avatar n tn the only difference with suboxone and subutex is that suboxone has a added ingredient that makes for a less potential of abuse, and overdose. suboxone is safer and a better choice i believe.
Avatar f tn This is a little on sub and pregancy somewhere I have something else that gave alot of really good info I will try to find it for you. Suboxone and Pregnancy -- What You Need to Know Abusing heroin or prescription painkillers while you are pregnant is very dangerous --both for your own health and for the health of the baby you are carrying. The best action you can take is to get into treatment and stop using drugs.
Avatar n tn It would be best for both you and the baby to be gently tapered off of Suboxone while you are still pregnant, so that you are both drug free by the time of the delivery and your baby will not need to go through any withdrawals at all. Even though babies have been safely delivered to mothers taking Suboxone and nursed by those mothers while on Suboxone, I still strongly believe, that it would be better for both of you to be drug free at the time of delivery.
1355259 tn?1324223584 I was very badly addicted to pain pills but have been off them for quite some time because i have been buying suboxone off the street but i have pain and have never had a pain doctor.I need to know what to tell my doctor tomarrow so she can refer me to a sub doctor and i dont know what to say since i never had a pain doctor before also because i dont have any pain pills in my system?
Avatar n tn It seems I have read more about withdrawels and miscarriage than adverse effects of the suboxone. I took vicodin (heavily) my whole pregnancy with my second son (hence the suboxone now) and he turned out perfectly perfect. Mostly worried about any damage so far. I will quit today if I know there is going to be problems. looking forward to your response!
Avatar n tn I would talk with your Ob and you doctor that you see for treatment and see if there is something else you can be taking. I found this for you, Buprenorphine (suboxone) and naloxone is in the FDA pregnancy category C. This means that it is not known whether buprenorphine and naloxone will be harmful to an unborn baby. Use of buprenorphine and naloxone during pregnancy may cause withdrawal symptoms in a newborn baby.
Avatar f tn If you find out you are pregnant, you need to tell your Sub doc and OB right away, as Suboxone is contraindicated in pregnancy. The typical move ios to switch a patient over to Subutex during the pregnancy. I also want to say, that your dose is WAY high. NO one at the maintenence point of Sub (after getting through the induction dose and adjusting) should ever have to be on a dose that is that high, regardless of how much you were using.
Avatar f tn I believe the biggest concern right now is not sex drive , but how Suboxone can affect the baby or the pregnancy. Suboxone is a class C medication meaning that it has not been shown to be safe or harmful in pregnancy. This is from the Suboxone website: Before taking SUBOXONE, tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.
Avatar f tn Babies have been safely delivered to mothers taking Suboxone and nursed by those mothers while on Suboxone. The best thing you can do is take good care of yourself, eat healthy food, stay hydrated, keep active and busy. Stay away from sugar, soda, and simple carbs. Do not consume caffeine at least 6 hours prior to bedtime. The best way to take care of your baby girl is to take care of yourself.
Avatar f tn I recommend that you find a doctor who is more confident in managing pregnancy while on Suboxone or Subutex. He is right though, either one of them is safe during pregnancy. If you want what is best for your baby, you should slowly taper off of the Suboxone by your third trimester. That way, you can be sure that by the time of the delivery both you and the baby are clean and ready to start healthy bonding and nursing.
