Cause serious issues: Several of these medication need to be stopped before planning a pregnancy. For example, the fluoxetine has been associated with birth defects and the Naproxen can cause bleeding. The oxycodone can cause respiratory depression and narcotic withdrawal symptoms in the newborn. All of this needs to be coordinated with the doctor who prescribes them and the obstetrician.
