Talk to your OB: and get him/her to make a referral to a specialty program which understands the issues. Many addiction professionals are not knowledgeable about pregnancy, and many OB/GYNs are not knowledgeable about the problems of opioid use in pregnancy. It depends on how many you are taking how often. If you use opioid regularly while pregnant, there is a high likelihood (about 70%) that baby has problem. ...Read more

My pain doc started treating my chronic back pain with hydrocodone which has helped, but i'm still young, is it bad taking 2 pills away for my liver?

Narcotics for pain: Hudrocodone is a very safe medication, even over the long term. Problem is that daily use over the long term is not a good idea. This is not an effective treatment of the underlying problem and can lead to tolerance for the drug: needing more and more pills everyday. I recommend taking this med sparingly, as needed and getting to the bottom of why you have pain to start. ...Read more
