Vicodin and early pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Vicodin and early pregnancy


Avatar f tn I have been taking vicodin, lortab, and percocet (not all at once) throughout my pregnancy with the supervision of my Dr. for a very painful neurological disorder. My Dr's have told me that their only concern is that if we cannot get me off these pills (by weaning) by the time that the baby is born that the baby could face withdrawls.
Avatar n tn you can see on my profile that my daughter is a very happy and HEALTHY 19-month-old now, and they were giving me stuff WAY stronger than vicodin for my kidney stones. Congrats on the pregnancy :). When do you find out if you're having a girl or a boy?
Avatar f tn I formerly was terribly addicted to vicodin. The suboxone has been wonderful and have not relapsed since starting my treatment. Life is great now! However, I believe I am pregnant...I am 3 days late and am taking a test tonight. I am already concerned about suboxone and my possible unborn child. Does anyone have any information on the drug and the effects on a fetus? Please help! Thank you!
Avatar n tn Vicodin is actually ok to take during pregnancy if you are prescribed them for pain and take the smallest dose. I was in a car accident during the first trimester of my last pregnancy and was prescribed vicodin. Doctor said as long as I took it in moderation and only when needed that it shouldn't do any harm. But like with everything during pregnancy, the best thing to do would be to contact your doctor and see what they think and maybe get an ultrasound to reassure yourself.

At every appointment, I tell her that my pain is worsening and unbearable but her only suggestions have been more narcotics and warm water exercise. I have even tried safe essential oils, herbs, vitamins and massage.

161427 tn?1229911282 The doctors knowing im preg. prescribed me vicodin cough syrup. Plus half the meds I HAVE to take during pregnancy are category c. My first dd turned out wonderfully. As long as your ob knows what you are taking it's ok. they wont let u take any thing that will seriously harm your child.
Avatar f tn t know about in early pregnancy, but I was prescribed vicodin in my last trimester because of 2 herniated discs. My perinatologist told me to take 1 to 2 every 4 hours as needed (I'm not sure of the mg) and that it was safe and anti inflammatories weren't. Talk to your Dr. because you need to have a plan and your Dr. is the only one who can weigh the risks and benefits and decide with you how to proceed. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I was sober off everything during the first 3 months of pregnancy. Lately, I have been abusing 1000 mg vicodin and I take about 3 a day. I am in pain, but it has turned into recreational and possibly physical addiction. I also take an occasional xanax as well. Have I hurt any aspect of the baby's development. I feel like I hate myself and I need help. I'm also on 60 mg of prozac a day, which the doctor told me was ok, and he monitors my meds.
Avatar f tn I, too, had a couple occasions to need vicodin while pregnant with each of my kids in the early 3rd trimester and was comfortable taking it because I knew the benefits outweighed the risks involved. Good luck. You can always call your local pharmacy and speak with the pharmacist for reassurance as well.
Avatar f tn I am 29 weeks pregnant and have been abusing Vicodin off and on for 4 years. I started out taking them for pain at maybe 2-4 a day. Now I'm at 6-8 a day. (HONESLTY) It has come to my attention recently that my baby will be born addicted to this **** if I don't stop now. I know how AWFUL withdrawl is and I'm feeling terribly guilty for putting my little unborn son in harms way. I have been selfish and have convinced myself that taking it throughout my pregnancy would be ok.
Avatar f tn There are other options for pain control during pregnancy that is safer during both pregnancy and breastfeeding - medication called Subutex, but both of your doctors must be familiar with it. You may need to consider looking for a physician who is more familiar with that medication during pregnancy if that is the case. Take good care of yourself.
630344 tn?1280104983 If so does it get better or do you stay in pain for the majority of the pregnancy, I am having headaches that pretty much do not ever go away and my muscles never relax and I was given the ok to take Vicodin for the headaches occasionally, but I do not want to take Vicodin on a daily basis and I need some type of relief. I was getting some relief in the sauna, but I am obviously unable to do this any longer. I cannot take it on a daily basis and I need some type of relief.
Avatar n tn Hi I also took vicodin in my early pregnancy (15-18 weeks) and I had no complications from it. I made sure to call and ask my doc if it was ok to take and she said that there should be no problems (I had a oral procedure done and it was prescribed to me) My son was born healthy with no complications. It sounds like (from your previous premie) that you are just apt to have your children early.
Avatar m tn She will be able to help you with the latest information in terms of safety and contraindications of Vicodin in the first trimester of pregnancy. In some cases, it may be that the benefit of taking Vicodin in the first trimester does outweigh the risks involved with taking Vicodin in the first trimester.
Avatar n tn I am 34 weeks pregnant and have been taking vicodin through out my pregnacy and I have stopped taking them now because I know that the baby will be here soon, but I am worried that it will still show up in a drug test in my unborn baby or in mine as well.Will it show up in my babies system still in 6 weeks.
Avatar m tn Oh I forgot to write what pills I take, mostly percosets or vicodin, I've been taking them for over 2 years now and I take up to 7 five milligram vicodin or 5 or 6 five milligram percoset at one time. That is the part that scares me, taking so many at one time. I don't take them all day like I used to, only that one time usually at night. I can't believe that I need to take that many at once to get a high. I never would have thought it would ever have gotten this bad.
Avatar f tn I took viocin when I had a tooth pulled early in my second trimester and my baby was absolutely fine and the doctor that pulled my tooth knew I was pregnant and I even called to double check to make sure it was okay and she said it was fine. Hope your daughter gets some relief.
Avatar n tn Right now, I am going to be tested for irregular levels and can not conceive. I was only on Vicodin for 1 wk and it totally screwed with me. All opiates can make your testoterone and prolactin irregular. Tough the pain out, its not worth it. PLus that sh*t is ddicting and makes you too tired to be active.
Avatar f tn Hi there. I can help you with this....I just had a baby 3 months ago and throughout my whole pregnancy I was taking vicoden. I was actually prescribed them by my OB. What is the dose you are taking? I was taking 5/500's. You are still very early in your pregnancy and I would say if you could get off of the pain pills now, then obviously that would be the best for you.
