Re: oxycontin while pregnant safe or not??
When I was pregnant some 29 years ago the doc put me on Percocet (which I think had just been put on the market). I was having severe back pain and the OB Clinic I was going through thought it would be appropriate. I took it throughout my pregnancy and it didn't seem to affect my daughter when she was born, but how can anyone really tell unless the mother is on something like cocaine or heroin or other substance that would make the baby obviously go into withdrawal. I'm assuming that oxycontin would be in the same class as far as safety during pregnancy as the Percocet was. But, like others have already mentioned, you deserve to have answers to your questions. Ask for an appointment with your doc and have a talk with him/her about your concerns. All the best - KathyMac
