  • I did with two pregnancies. One I had broken bones, and dealing with the pain was worse than the medicine itself, and the other pregnancy I lost too much sleep because I had migranes and I actually tore my round ligament, right in the crotch! Both the babies were just fine!

  • I had to take the same painkillers while I was pregnant and my baby was fine.  But I didn't take them on a daily basis.  I think there might be some risk of the baby having withdrawal symptoms.  If the docs know what you're taking, then I guess they know how to handle any detox symptoms the baby has.  Goodluck.  They are hard to kick, believe me I know.  But I think suboxone and methadone are in fact worse for the baby.

  • I took oxycodone while pregnant for severe kidney pain. I only took it for about two months off and on though. My son was fine.

  • Not sure. Good Luck. Just ask your DR.
