Lortab while pregnant?? southern mommy 3 kids; Ruston, Louisiana 1644 posts

I have a retarded question to ask real quck and hopefully get an answer really soon. Has anyone taken Lortab's while pregnant? My hips hurt so bad I can't even move right now and I have some 7.5's that I could take but I don't want to if it's going to possibly hurt the baby. I looked it up on the internet but the most I could find said that there weren't really any studies in pregnant women so they don't know the risks but to take it if the benefits outweigh the risk... BUT I can't find the risks damnit. I hurt so bad right now. I think my pelvis is going to fall apart. Any input would be appreciated right now.

Yea I had the same pain, my doctor said 2 extra strength tylenol every 4-6 hours. Tylenol does nothing for me so this didn't work and I kind of lived with the pain, but it recently disapeared..I have no idea why but it is gone.

i was on tylenol 3 for the last month and a half of my pregnancy...



i'd call the doc, but i imagine one would be okay.

I was prescribed Vicodin (same as Lortab) by my doc for bad headaches. She just told me to not take more than 3 a day. (they were the 5's, not 7.5's though) and she didn't want me taking any my last month of pregnancy. I only took them when I really needed them. I would say it woyldn't hurt anything but I'm not your doc. Bad pain can cause more stress on you and baby than taking 1 pill would.

My doctor prescribed me lortab 5 mg while I was pregnant and it didn't hurt the baby so you should be fine to take them

Well I was admitted to the hospital a few weeks back and i was given morphine, fentanyl, and dilaudid and i was assured by all 5 doctors that i saw that all of those were not harmful to the baby at all so i cant imagine that Lortab is.. but if all else fails, call your doctor and ask.. he/she maybe able to give you something that he/she thinks is more safe.. i know i was given Vicodin for the pain after i left the hospital..

i was precribed lortabs last night for horrible back pain and contractions that i cant sleep through. my doctor told me i can take them up to 4 times a day but i only plan on taking them to sleep when the pain is super bad. i was very unsure about taking them but the pain got so bad last night i ended up taking one. the pharmacist just told me to take small doses and only when needed b/c u dont want the baby to get addicted to them.
