    There has been no studies as yet to prove whether Vicodin should be taken during pregnancy or not. However it is advisable, not to take this drug if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant unless you are directed to do so by your doctor. Drug dependence may occur in newborns when the mother has taken this drug regularly prior to the delivery. If you take this, shortly before delivery, the baby's breathing may be slowed down.

    Hi I was on Lortab 5mg through half of my prgnancy for migraines and nerve pains in my legs, I ended up going into prematue labor at 26 weeks and my daughter was born weighing 1 lb 6 oz but thanks to god and the wonderful Dr's she is now a normal 5yr old starting kindergarten they did not know if the prematuity had anything to do with the meds as I was told I would never have children so it was very shocking and I had comp. throughout the whole 26wks. I hope this info helps alittle probably not because they never determind if thats what caused it. Good luck Shelly

    this is really good advice...narcotic analgesics may affect a newborn baby's breathing and development. I would definitely discuss it with your doctor first...ta
    "Vicodin is in the FDA pregnancy category C. This means that it is not known whether it will be harmful to an unborn baby. Do not take this medication without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant or could become pregnant during treatment"

    The most common side effects with Cialis are headache, indigestion, back pain, muscle aches, flushing, and stuffy or runny nose. These side effects usually go away after a few hours. Patients who get back pain and muscle aches usually get it 12 to 24 hours after taking Cialis. Back pain and muscle aches usually go away by themselves within 48 hours. Call your doctor if you get a side effect that bothers you or one that will not go away.

    I took a LOT of hydrocodne while I was pregnant cause I had a cyst that was very painful that needed surgery but of course they couldn't knock me out while i was pregnant, so all they could do was numb up the area and drain it whenever it grew back and give me narcotic pain meds. So they gave me hydrocodne, and this was from a ob/gyn....And then I started getting severe migrianes while I was pregnant and my ob/gyn gave me percocets. So it couldnt be that bad for the baby or they wouldnt be prescribing me narcotics all the time.

    Default vicodon during pregnancy

    A very good friend of mine gave birth recently to a ten pound boy, her pregnancy went fine and she was being prescribed oxycodone and hydrocodone for migraine headaches throughout her entire pregnancy.

    Doctors in fact ARE prescribing this medication to pregnant women. If you are addicted to vicodon, please take it in moderation, increase your water intake, and think positively. Try and get help, too. Saying that vicodon is harmful to the fetus is simply unsubstantiated, vicodon has been being prescribed for years-- at this point, I believe the FDA would have sufficient evidence of it harming a baby, right?

    One thing I am not seeing anybody question is the long term effects??? Like developmental delays? Petite mall seizures? Learning disabilities? ADD/ADHD? Could these be linked to taking narc. Drugs while pregnant?
