Vicadin whil pregnant?

Occassionally I use to take 1/2 or 1/4 of a vicadin only when I had a really bad headached or back ache ... does anyone know if this is okay to take during early pregnancy? I am 7 weeks pregnant right now.

Its not really been determined yet but ive taken it too with my last 2 pregnancies 4 headaches and all turned out fine. I would only take them If you have to but it shoujld be ok but I would still talk with your doctor first about it.

Re: Vicadin whil pregnant?

I really don't think it is safe in the first trimester at all. This is something I would definately talk to your doc about. Maybe after the first trimester he will prescribe some tylenol 3 or depacote. Those 2 drugs have been prescribed to me in my 2nd or 3rd trimesters of pregnancy. Maybe you can get some relief with them, but REALLY not in the 1st trimester.
