Is pain medication safe?

I'm 22 weeks and just got out of the hospital for major pain in my ribs. My doctors gave me Lortabs (hidrocodine) he said it was safe but thats a powerful drug. It makes me loopy I worry about the baby. Is it really safe? Has anyone else taken it?

  • I had kidney stones while I was pregnant (starting at the end of my 4th month) and had to take Percocet off and on for the rest of my pregnancy. I was extremely nervous, but the pain was unbearable. I trusted my doctor and took the meds (when I really needed them) and delivered a healthy baby boy. I believe Percocet is stronger than Lortab. Good luck!
