  • If she's been taking that many and has been on them long term for whatever reason, pain control or recreational use, then the withdrawal is going to hurt her more than it is her baby. Otherwise, they will probably be okay. She needs to mention this when she has her first checkup or sooner. I don't know the specifics of her story so that's about all I can come up with. Oxycodone is a Cat B drug.

  • It should not-- but the chances she'll stay clean are really low--the continued abuse WILL effect the baby
