I am scared to death... im scared that im going to been in pain this whole pregnancy if they take me off the medicine. im scared for my baby if they keep me on the medicine. I have looked up the side effects but am still very concerned about every aspect of this pregnancy. someone please give me some piece of mind. this is also my 4th pregnancy... all of which have been c-sections!! the doctor I had with the last three children said he would not deliver my baby because I have had 3 previous c-sections!! help!!!
Relax and have a serious talk with the obstetrician. If you are on the controlled release oxycodone and the benefits outweigh the risks, then stay on it for awhile. You will want to eventually taper off so to prevent you and the baby going through withdrawals. Again, your obstetrician is the best to advise when and how to do this.
Congratulations and best wishes,
You can actually give live birth after having previous c-sections because my dughter-in-law has done it.If you are wanting to try the natural birth maybe you should cotnact a different obstetrician, unless ofcourse you have some reason a normal birth cannot happen.What is the cause of your pain that you take 30mg of oxycodone? Does your doctor know this?
Talk to your ob/gyn, and be honest. Other than benzos and speed, most drugs are relatively safe to use during pregnancy as long as they were taken as presdribed, RELAX first off. Slowly wean off the opiates if you can, at least if you can. I too had to take similar meds throughout my pregnancy only to find out later that they were quite alright, but preferabbly in the 2nd or 3rth trimester to prevent w/d in baby. No long term issues.. Its more of a shock-risk to go to the system to go cold turkey than contnue using, carefully, these things can only be done saddly, under a dr's care. I was medically treated with Xanax (after 1st trimester) and Vicodin or percoset in equivalent doses to your oxy in take. Less Tylenol the better. Don't just go cold turkey--you're unborn child cant undersant that, Nether do your older children who will see u in pain. Good luck to u n your baby, just do your research andtalk hopenly with your baby dr.
