  • i think the same, if it wasnt safe he wouldnt have prescribed it...but it wont hurt to call and demand that he tell you its def safe, i wouldnt say to take it to a local pharmacy because they dont know ur must be safe tho

  • What do you mean, "won't give you any answers"? He's just completely ignoring you? I'd find a new doctor if your's can't even talk to you!

  • I have no idea. But sometimes they will prescribe something that may not be completely safe for the baby, if the untreated condition would be worse for the baby. I had that in my second pregnancy. Thank God he was OK anyway.

  • Depends on what its for. As long as he knew you were pregnant then yes its ok to take. If you are recovering from surgery or something like that and pregnant they do prescribe that to patients. Its pain medication though and like any pain medication should only be taken when you need it. If you arent in that much pain dont take it and take tylenol instead.

  • what did he prescribe it for?

  • Yes it is safe for baby. The only real issue would be if you used it frequently or for long term. Your baby may have withdrawl symptoms after being born.

    I was put on it during my pregnancy and before i took any of it I pulled out my nursing books (I am a nurse) and my drug books to re-verify that it was safe.

    And to those women who say that if your doctor prescribes it than it is safe, do not trust that! During my pregnancy I was prescribed a medication that was not safe to take while pregnant. It is always good to double check with a pharmacist or research it on your own.
