Anyone ever taken Lortab while pregnant?I'm 20 weeks...

Here's the deal...I was in a wreck Monday night, went to the ER and found I have 2 broken bones in my right foot...I am also scratch up from head to toe, its terrible! I am 20 weeks as of today, but they said it was fine to take while pregnant. I had to go to the orthopedic Doctor and now i have a huge boot on and crutches and all that jazz, but my foot HURTS! He gave me a perscription for lortabs, but I have tried not to take them if i can help it...i went alll night long without any pain medicine and im soo proud of myself, but man my foot is KILLING me! Was thinking about taking one, but was wondering if anyone else had taken them while pregnant...they said it was fine, just wanted some input/support =)

  • Yes I had to take them on occasion with both my pregnancies, in small doeses it's fine. The stress of pain is more harmful to you and baby, then taking a Lortab. Hope you feel better soon hon

  • I had my appendix removed when I was 20 weeks pregnant with my son. I was given loritab for pain after surgery. I took it for almost 4 weeks. and my son was fine. it is safe to take during pregnancy.

  • yes i was prescribed loratabs by a physician, but I didnt take them because I wasnt in any pain. Call your doctor if you are sceptical about your decision.

  • I took Percocet for the last 2 months of my first pregnancy every day due to kidney stones and a stent. It's basically the same thing. My child came out healthy and perfect!

  • yes I had to take pain meds for a while during my pregnancy and my little is fine. Just take them as needed but don't wait until the pain is unbearable b/c then it doesn't work as well.
