Is It Safe To Take Morphine While Pregnant
Yes: You can use morphine while pregnant or breastfeeding for very specific reasons and for very short periods of time. Usually it is used for pain control. Having your appendix removed while pregnant, a c-section, or suffering from kidney stones are some examples of situations where you might need morphine for a short time. It is addictive to the mom and the baby so you can't use for a long time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Morphine: Every drug you take must be balanced by it's risks. Morphine is safe but you have not said why you are taking it and for how long. If you have surgery and need pain control, then by all means use the drug. If you are taking it for other reasons, then you need to ask yourself do I need the medication. It is best to use the least amount of medications. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Not unless prescribed by or okayed by your obstetrician. Some opiates (usually methadone or buprenorphine) in cautious doses are safe in pregnancy to treat heroine or other illicit opiate addiction, but they do cross the placenta and can lead to sedation or withdrawal in a developing fetus if not dosed carefully and consistently. Opiates in most situations are unduly risky for pain in pregnancy. ...Read more
With caution yes: any time opiates given to a pregnant woman the benefit to the mother must outweigh the risk to the baby. There is no reason to believe it will hurt the baby's development but EVERYONE needs to know the mother is on morphine and prepare for the baby to withdraw after delivery. Be certain everyone is on the same page. ...Read more

Roxanol (morphine): Roxanol (morphine) is Morphine Sulfate and should be reserved for the treatment of severe, acute pain. (broken bones, burns, etc) Its a Category C drug which means harm to the fetus can't be ruled out. If taken after the first trimester but not in the last 2 weeks, the baby is probably fine. If taken real late in pregnancy the baby can go through physical withdrawal problems. ...Read more

Break up pattern: The ER is absolutely the worst place to go with a migraine, as the lights, noise, commotion, make all worse. Narcotics such as morphine are completely inappropriate and breed chronic daily headaches. If you are pregnant, breathing 100% oxygen may help. If not, should start an OTC preventative, such as riboflavin, Co-Q10, butterbur, even magnesium. Find headache specialist. ...Read more
Im on Percocet and Morphine ER for pain conditions and just found out Im pregnant. What are the risks associated with taking these medications?
Neonatal abstinence: syndrome is the major pregnancy complication. Women taking opioids for pain are also passing it along to the fetus, and depending on a variety of factors, about 70% of babies born to moms on opioids will develop a withdrawal syndrome. If possible to taper the medication in your second trimester and use alternative pain management, that would be best. It is treatable in hospitals with expertise. ...Read more
