I'm 25 weeks pregnant and my OB prescribed Vistaril for anxiety and insomnia. Is this widely considered safe during pregnancy?

I'm 25 weeks pregnant and my OB prescribed Vistaril for anxiety and insomnia. Is this widely considered safe during pregnancy?

Best discuss concern: with your OB who must weigh benefits and risks for you and your baby of any medication prescribed during pregnancy. Antihistamines are contraindicated in the first trimester and risk beyond that is uncertain. If necessary Vistaril is considered a good choice and it is recommended to drink ample water to overcome possible side effects. Alert OB to increased movement. Best regards for good health. ...Read more

HIgh risk pregnancy: With these illnesses and medications, she has a high-risk pregnancy. She needs a good team to see her through: maternal-fetal medicine physician, psychiatrist, and therapist.

Can I use vicodine (hydrocodone) during pregnancy for extreme pain?

Can I use vicodine (hydrocodone) during pregnancy for extreme pain?

Consult your OB: It isn't normal to have extreme pain during pregnancy. Did you have chronic pain before you became pregnant? The key thing is to diagnose the source of the pain, and treat it if necessary. Vicodin just reduces pain without treating the cause. Don't take any meds, for pain or anything else, without discussing with your OB doctor. Vicodin could be OK, but you need to make sure. Good luck! ...Read more

Debilitating migraines, 6 weeks pregnant, taking fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) daily. Fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) or hydrocodone during pregnancy, which has less effect on embryo and fetus?

Debilitating migraines, 6 weeks pregnant, taking fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) daily. Fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) or hydrocodone during pregnancy, which has less effect on embryo and fetus?

Not advise either: Some obstetricians feel that hydrocodone is relatively safe during pregnancy, but in my opinion, best to avoid if possible. Would not recommend use of Fioricet (acetaminophen butalbital and caffeine) in most patients with migraine, especially pregnancy, as it is in the barbiturate family, and has habituation risk. Have found that breathing 100% oxygen as needed is useful and safe. As pregnancy proceeds your headaches should lessen. ...Read more

Is it possible to show negative on both home and doctor's urine pregnancy tests up to the second trimester and still be pregnant?

Is it possible to show negative on both home and doctor's urine pregnancy tests up to the second trimester and still be pregnant?

Highly unlikely: Home urine pregnancy tests are highly reliable when performed properly and in the proper time frame. The typical time frame when one would expect the test to be positive would be 7-10 days after a missed period. Therefore having two separate tests show negative into the second trimester is highly unlikely if one is truly pregnant. ...Read more
