  • does your OB know? is he/she who wrote it? sometimes risks outweigh benefits.

    I for one was on morphine for 36 weeks of my last pregnancy....... as long as you aren't taking anything sneaky and your DRs and pharmacy all know what trimester ur in

  • NO it's NOT safe!!! Muscle relaxers could stop the babys heart!!! Did the Dr KNOW you were preggo when he prescribed it? CALL the pharmacy and ASK the pharmacist on duty if it's safe to take while preggo before you take it.

    Robaxin should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed. Safe use of Robaxinhas not been established with regard to possible adverse effects ...

  • muscle relaxers (and narcotics, and other things) are LARGELY filtered by the placenta. Don't scare her! If her dr prescribed it and she was honest about her pregnancy and is taking it as prescribed, it could actually be GOOD for baby..... if mom is in horrible pain she can have very low or very high blood pressures which can be toxic for baby

    preg moms take CHEMO sometimes when pregnant. it is not ideal.... but not everyone is healthy and blessed.

  • I would ask your OB to be sure and not take it until then.
