Is It Safe To Take Vicodin While Pregnant
Yes, but...: We do try to avoid narcotics when we can. Vicodin has a narcotic and tylenol in it. The narcotic does get to the baby a bit. Babies born after mom has been on a narcotic every day for a while do go through a withdrawal. So we try to avoid it, especially long term. But for an acute pain, it is safe in pregnancy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Migraine pain, need medicine. Tried to concieve thur, sat and sun today is tuesday. Is it safe to take imitrix or vicodin or could I b pregnant ?
This is critical: If you become pregnant, and then take Imitrex for your headaches, you have high risk of miscarriage. So, triptans are totally verboten (forbidden) during pregnancy. However, tylenol is ok, and my ob-gyn colleagues seem to be all right with vicodin. Many migraine meds are too dangerous to the fetus to risk, so my advice is to discuss fully with you obstetrician. A neurologist may also help. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Been told by obgyn and neurologist vicodin ok to take while pregnant. I'm almost 12 wks. Is it really ok? Any studies done? does it cross placenta?

I have been taking Vicodin for about 2 months and I'm pregnant will this affect my baby when it's time to deliver which is a couple weeks?
Yes: and its CRITICAL that your OB provider know this in advance. Depending on how much Vicodin you are taking, there is a chance that your baby will develop what is called neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). This doesn't happen in all babies, but babies where mothers are using opiates should be observed for at least 3 days to determine if NAS is present. It can be treated, but may take weeks. ...Read more

If a man is taking vicodin Zanaflex and nuerontin can it cause birth defects if my wife gets pregnant while im on this medicine ?
No.: There little to no evidence linking paternally ingested drugs to birth defects. The paternal contribution to birth defects had to do with age (more autosomal dominant rare but severe traits can manifest after de novo mutations in the spermatozoa) and family history and not generally with drug exposure. ...Read more
