Ok so I'm already in a lot of pain in my back and my knees. Everytime I sit down, my knees kill me! I'm only 30 weeks, I still have a long time to go! I've been told I can I can take vicodin if needed, that stress from pain can be more harmful. I'm just curious if any of you had to be put on Vicodin while pregnant? Just your personal experience. How much is ok to take? I don't want to risk anything but the pain is already getting scary

Jun. 17, 2008 at 1:30 PM i was given vicodin for pain when I had my abscessed tooth. try to take it every 6-12 hrs instead of every 4 that is recommended. you don't want to take too much . it should be OK.

Jul. 1, 2008 at 4:29 PM i was on vicodin when i was pregnant bc i have migranes and there was nothing else thats safe during pregs for that.  they told me in my last trimester to not use it so theres no chance the baby gets addicted to it but i changed docs later on and i was in TONS of pain being preg and the new doc said i can take it in my 3rd tri just not too often.  my son was born completely healthy and i even took it while breastfeeding [not too often of course]. perfectly safe.

Jul. 2, 2008 at 10:47 AM It's safe to take while pregnant... Try to avoid motrin and ibprofin(?). Theres a blood thinner in ibp. and if you were to go preterm it could cause major issues.
