What would happen if I took roxanol (morphine) during pregnancy?

Roxanol (morphine) Roxanol (morphine) is Morphine Sulfate and should be reserved for the treatment of severe, acute pain. (broken bones, burns, etc) Its a Category C drug which means harm to the fetus can't be ruled out. If taken after the first trimester but not in the last 2 weeks, the baby is probably fine. If taken real late in pregnancy the baby can go through physical withdrawal problems.
