Is It Safe To Take Norco While Pregnant
Medically necessary: It's safe if it is medically necessary, and you stop as soon as possible. It is definitely not ideal. Ask the prescribing doctor if he/she knows you are pregnant; if you have no prescribing doctor and got it somewhere else, do not use it. ...Read more

I'm 22 weeks pregnant and want to stop norco and flexeral. Is it safe?I take 6 norco a day.How should I go about stopping so no withdrawals?
Slowly taper: In the states we would put you on either Methadone or Buprenorphine during pregnancy and then taper after. Since that may not be an option, do a slow taper, go down to 5 pills a day for 5 days and then 4 a day for 5 days and so on. We don't usually try to detox pregnant patients since the stress can trigger early labor. Discuss your options with your ob. ...Read more
My wife just found out she's pregant she takes norco 7.5/325mg is it safe for her to still take them she has serve back neck and knee pain?
Other meds preferred: Congratulations on the pregnancy. The most common reason women take these pain medications are back pain and headaches. When used carefully by a pregnant woman under the direction of a doctor for a short period of time, there is no conclusive evidence that hydrocodone will cause long-term effects in babies. Excessive use cause complications for the baby, however, particularly after delivery. ...Read more
No: Suboxone is classified as category c by the fda. It has caused defects in animal studies but has not been adequately studied in humans. Hydrocodone also carries a c classification.

No: The clear recommendation is to ONLY resort to it if the potential benefits outweigh the risks to the fetus. So, it's a judgement call. Definitely talk to your OBGYN before taking it and seek alternative means of managing pain. This will be valuable to you over the near future at least. Best wishes for a healthy birth experience. ...Read more
I am 7wks pregnant and take 1 Norco 10/325 for back pain. Not daily, but as needed and no more than one in a day. Will the baby have any problems?
Probably safe: No medication is completely safe for the baby, especially in the first trimester of pregnancy. However, the amount of Norco you are taking has been used safely by others with no significant adverse effects to the fetus. Follow up with your obstetrician to make sure you and the baby stay healthy. ...Read more
I'm 12 weeks pregnant, and have pulled something in my neck. I am in agony. Can I take a Norco to ease the pain?
You Can: This is a treacherous area. Opiate pain medication and tylenol (the two ingredients in NORCO) are considered safe in pregnancy but should be reserved for occasional use when really needed. Opiates taken every day rapidly lead to tolerance and addiction in both mother and baby. Babies born dependent on opiates experience withdrawal and generally have problems even after they withdraw. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hello I'm 7 weeks pregnant and I have been in n norco sense I was 14 and I'm 21 due to 2 back surgeries. Can I still take norco and lower the dose?
Yes: Abrupt withdraw from narcotics can cause harm to the baby. In the setting of chronic use of narcotics of long duration, it is often best to try to slowly taper down to the lowest dose possible. A zero dose is good but not always possible. Bear in mind that your baby will have to withdraw from narcotics when born and this is a difficult way to start life. Work with your Ob on this! ...Read more

What did they say?: Did u ask them because u should have asked them. That has hydrocodone and acetominiphen, which normally u would not take if u are pregnant but after that surgery if u have to use those for a few days it will most likely not cause a problem but ask your OB as your OB may want to have the surgeon use something different, u are not supposed to take mortin either. ...Read more
