They do test for prescription drugs too, esp painkillers. They come up as an opiate, the samething heroin comes up as

what is rude is someone being worried about when to stop taking drugs of any kind so they dont show up in their newborn baby! That is first of all a felony...child endangerment.

Sorry if anyone has made a rude comment when all u were doing was asking but before i found out i was preg. i was taking percs. when i found out i was born i did quit . Any pain meds can cause harm to your baby but as long as its not constant or at high dosage im sure it will be alright but when u go into labor depending on what hosptial you go to they will drug test you so i think its best to just get off the pain meds completely ask your doc for baby safe meds to help with pain. they have them. If they are found in ur system at time of bitch they will contact S.S it happend to a friend of mine and it took along time for her to get her baby back. Its prob in the best interest of u and ur baby to just stop now completely and get the right meds.

i'm prescribed hydrocodone sue to back problems and my doctor knows. He told me as long as I was taking the recommend dose and not over doing it that it was fine but to stop a couple weeks before i delivered so the baby wouldn't withdraw.

It is not mandatory to drug test at birth in every state. They will if they suspect or if the baby shows symptoms of withdrawal.



OP if you are in so much pain why not just take Tylenol extra strength? I fell and could barely walk at 6 months pregnant and my dr recommended me to take Tylenol. Even though I was in extreme pain for almost 2 months I only took Tylenol twice. I much rather not take a chance.

ummmm actually I WAS prescribed them right before I got pregnant for a slipped dick in my hip and at the beginning of my pregnancy for an abscess tooth so I still had some left bc they gave me 120 hydrocodone!! So therefore I know there not going to cause birth defects bc they gave them to me and I wouldn't be stupid enough to get them off the streets so.... but thanks for your concerns:)

slipped disc in your hips??? Never heard of that. The dentist gave 120 hyrdos for an abcess?? wow! That sure is a lot. I'm a dentist and would never rx that many to a pt for an abcess... 20 at most. Honestly though, you really should inform your OB about this drug use. At least ask if it is ok prior to just taking them on your own. I have extreme hip pain accompanied by numbness. I just deal with it and don't take any pain meds at all. Not even tylonol. I just try and stretch and massage it out. But that's me.

OMG, so I didn't even finish reading these before I KNEW I had to write something, to that post up there, no you are not an addict because you take more than tylenol and 3 is barely any. You should tell your doctor ASAP cuz of interactions etc with other meds and side effects, BUT, seriously really, you must have never had chronic pain or illness...I was PERSCRIBED percocet in the ER for pelvic pain, I was PERSCRIBED vicodin for back pain, and was taking it frequently like daily until I ran out but I'm oviously nto asking for more bcuz I'm not stupid, it was supposed to be a temp. this before I got really into P. therapy....and I take tylenol....idk I just had to write...if a dr perscribes you something then who is a person to tell you it's wrong, but you haven't seemed to consult your doctor that's not good. IBPROUFEN is a no no and tylenol is the main one, vicodin can cause withdrawls after a period of time .....not sure about percocet,, the rest idk..I'm also on sleeping pills and 20 weeks pregnant, I felt the need to share that as well cuz they are also dr approved by multiple doctors:D

Also, the dentist prescribed you the hydro knowing you were preggo without consulting with your OB?? That is extremely unethical on their part and actually could result in a law suit. What kind of dentist is this?? lol

Maybe you should do some research before knocking the poor woman. She doesn't take them several times a day or even every day. and sometimes it IS necessary for a pregnant woman to take more than just tylenol. I have to take vicodin probably 2 or three times a week for kidney problems during my pregnancy, and YES they are prescribed by a doctor. UNLESS you are a doctor, what right do you have to tell ANYONE what they should or shouldn't be doing? Obviously, you need help...a little education, maybe...Geez, people. be a little more supportive. it's not necessary to tell people they're going to have their children taken away. if you can't be decent, keep your comments to yourself.

I can tell you that I personally know someone that took pain medication that was not prescribed by any doctor and when she gave birth to the baby, they tested the placenta, and it showed up. It was not in her system, but apparently whatever you take, stays in the placenta much much longer than what it would in your system. She is working on getting her child back. But best of luck! Not trying to freak you out or anything but also, babies can still be born with withdrawals even if you stop at 30 wks, but since it is not an everyday thing, you should be ok. Probably want to tell the doc though just incase they do test the placenta. I don't know if that is a routine thing or not.
