Please tell me is it okay to take hydrocodone while pregnant?

How much, how often? If there is an acute injury, like an ankle sprain or some such, use of a few vicodin (acetaminophen/hydrocodone) is not dangerous to you or the baby. However, regular use of vicodin, like any other opioid, will result in physical dependency both for you and your developing child. Children born to mothers on opioids may require being withdrawn in the hospital, which can take weeks or even months.
