A medicine has a "risk" warning does not mean that all babies will be affected--just as some medicine works for one person and not other. Anyhow, you are fortunate to have a healthy baby. Congrats. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

How often for ?issue: Your OB provider and your prescribing physician need to be in contact with each other. If there are no other choices to treat the pain of your condition, and you are taking a modest dose (3-4 tablets per day), the chances that the baby will have neonatal abstinence syndrome is about 30%. You need to deliver in a setting where they know how to treat it - ideally a tertiary referral center. ...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

Is it safe to take percocet while pregnant, I have sickle cell?

Tough question: We do not recommend opioid use in pregnant women chronically, as infants will be born with symptoms of addiction known as neonatal abstinence syndrome that can result in prolonged hospitalization for the infant.

See addiction MD: It is not safe to go through "cold turkey" withdrawal in pregnancy. It risks both your safety and the safety of your unborn child. Depending on how many Percocet you were using, a variety of things could be done, ranging from a supervised detoxification to maintenance with Buprenorphine (suboxone/subutex). All this has to start with seeing an addiction specialist-asam.Org or aaap.Org can help. ...Read more

Just found out 6 weeks pregnant; took Percocet 5/325 3x a day for chronic headaches before I knew. OB said should be ok but seeking 2nd opinion?

Just found out 6 weeks pregnant; took Percocet 5/325 3x a day for chronic headaches before I knew. OB said should be ok but seeking 2nd opinion?

It's OK: If you have stopped your Percocet, you don't need to worry. Ongoing narcotic use--we worry about neonatal abstinence syndrome--withdrawal. It would be ideal if you can find a solution for your headaches that doesn't require narcotics, and maybe seeing a doctor who is a headache specialist can help find a long term non-addictive solution. GOOD LUCK!! ...Read more

Dr decreased my percocet from 120 month to 30 and I haven't passed all drug test and it's a chronic back problems. Are they allowed to do this and why?

Dr decreased my percocet from 120 month to 30 and I haven't passed all drug test and it's a chronic back problems. Are they allowed to do this and why?

Several reasons: First of all narcotics like percocet are best used for acute pain, not chronic pain. If not passing your drug test means that the doctor saw illegal substances in your drug screen then that is probably the reason for lowering your percocet. Narcotics mixed with street drugs are very dangerous and can result in death. Doctors can decrease doses if they feel it is necessary or dangerous for you. ...Read more

NA and/or rehab: Join Narcotics Anonymous and get a sponsor and go to meetings. Call drug rehab programs in your area as well. You are making a smart, wise, healthy decision to get off opiates. Do not get on Lyrica, (pregabalin) Neurontin or Clonazepam either, as they have dependency issues as well. Avoid alcohol and any other addicting meds, too. Exercise is a huge help. Stop nicotine while you are detoxing from opiates. ...Read more
