You will have to go to the Dr. Take as low a dose as you can until you can get to your Dr. I would even ask the Nurse on the phone when you call to make an appointment. My sons information says to inform the Dr. if you are pregnant before taking the medicind. She will ask The Dr. and they will see to it right away. Good luck honey. The baby is affected more by anything ingested by you in the first trimester, hence all the early pregnancy tests. Your Dr. is the only one who can tell you.
Suboxone is in the FDA pregnancy category C. This means that it is not known whether Suboxone will be harmful to an unborn baby. Use of this medication during pregnancy may cause withdrawal symptoms in a newborn baby. Do not take Suboxone if you are pregnant or could become pregnant during treatment. Buprenorphine and naloxone pass into breast milk and may be harmful to a nursing baby. Do not take this medication if you are breast-feeding a baby.
Please try not to worry too much. Everything may work out ok. But please contact OB/GYN as soon as possible. Congratulations on becoming a mommy. My very best to you and your unborn child.
I will hope and pray for the best results possible,
Stopping suboxone cold turkey will cause withdrawel symtoms, so I do not suggest that by any means. You won't have withdrawel symtoms immediately because of the way the drug works, but if you were to stop suboxone today, you will feel the effects in about seven days, so I suggest getting in touch with your doctor immediately and you are probably doing the best thing in cutting it down gradually until you can do so. Good luck and congradulations!!!
