I would encourage: You to hold off on getting pregnant until you are well enough to no longer need morphine. Are you using the morphine for a medical problem or recreationally?

Prenatal vitamins: Take a prenatal vitamin with at least 800 micrograms (mcg) of folic acid, or a prescription one with 1 milligram (mg) of folic acid. Talk to your OB dr if taking anti-seizure medications or a family or personal history of birth defects; you may need 4-5 mg of folic acid. Avoid excess alcohol, any smoking, marijuana, other drugs, and review any prescription meds with your doctors. Get a flu shot.

Ascol: In animal studies of Asacol (mesalamine) and pregnancy, the medication did not cause problems in pregnant rats and rabbits. It should be remembered, however, that animals do not always respond to medicines in the same way as humans, the full risks of using Asacol (mesalamine) during pregnancy are not known. Discuss this with your obstetrician.
