Opiates, even the weaker one's like hydrocodone (vicodin, lortab, hydro's) are addictive and if you can avoid taking them then you should. You baby stands the chance of being born addicted if you are taking opiates on a regular basis. If this is something were you have a painful condition and you have taken hydrocodone before for a limited time then you should be OK. Take as little as possible and only when there is no other option... Good luck and happy baby... Dave
