Re: Pregnancy and Muscle relaxers

Jessie - I have Terrible muscle spasms due to back and neck problems - had neck surgery (min. invasive) and have been on soma for 5 years... NO matter what her ob says ... she cannot quit something like that cold turkey - it can abort the baby. If she feels she would like to discontinue them she needs to go off them slowly backing down her intake.

I am doing that now. My ob said at first you MUST stop ya da ya da
then when I brought up the abort information he said you are right that can happen and muscle relaxers that I am taking soma... has not been proven to hurt the baby - or my pain killer darvocet. So now he has approved my going off them and I am doing a GREAT job! its going very fast....

Hope this helps.
