Is it safe to take morphine while pregnant or breastfeeding?

Is it safe to take morphine while pregnant or breastfeeding?

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 more

Is it safe to take morphine during the 1st trimester of pregnancy?

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 more

Is it OK to take morphine 30 pill wile pregnant I'm 10 weeks I HV bad back pain?

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

Is it safe! for a doctor to give morphine to a pregnant mother?

Is it safe! for a doctor to give morphine to a pregnant mother?

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

Is oxycodone 15mg or morphine sulfate ir 15mg safe during pregnancy if taken as directed by the doctor?

That Depends...: I have to presume that your prescribing OB thinks it is "safe" and that you are requesting another (2nd) opinion to validate his/her advice. A great idea! in such situations. First, however, i'd advise you to revisit the question with your original ob, getting clarity and reassurance before then moving on to someone new. ...Read more

Hi morphine dose: Your infant will no doubt be born addicted and will have to be weaned off of morphine from birth. You are on a really high dose of morphine. It's not clear why. Both for your sake and the baby's try to detox as soon as possible. ...Read more

What would happen if I took roxanol (morphine) during pregnancy?

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
