Discussions that mention vicodin

Addiction & Recovery board


I am almost 7 months pregnant and have been taking vicodin for the last 5 months. They have been prescribed and ok'd by the doctor, however, everyone keeps telling me that my son will come out with all sorts of problems. I have been taking 2-3 10/500 I was wondering if there is anyone out that has taken the medication while pregnant, and what outcome they have had. I am really scared for the well being of my child

I suppose you have to ask yourself how comfortable you feel about giving your infant opiate drugs because that is what you are doing.

Are you comfortable that there is 'some amount of opiates' that are acceptable to feed to an unborn child?

Don't think that just because a person has a medical degree that they are infalable or that they know everything. Read this forum and find the multitudes of vicodine and oxycodone addicts who got started by prescriptions from their doctors who told the trusting patient that they wouldn't get addicted.

Sometimes you have to apply your own common sense.
Hi there!!

I too was on vicodin while pg. My baby is perfect and they had me on it the entire time.. What are your soecific questions.
I cannot imagine what would cause a Dr. to prescribe that much Vicodin to a pregnant woman. Do you take that much every day? If so, does the Dr. know you take it every day?
