I'm 12 weeks pregnant, and have pulled something in my neck. I am in agony. Can I take a Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) to ease the pain?
You Can: This is a treacherous area.

Babies born dependent on opiates experience withdrawal and generally have problems even after they withdraw. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Excessive use cause complications for the baby, however, particularly after delivery. ...Read more
