she was addicted before the pregnancy and I tried for the longest time to get her off of them and I lost all hope and figured can't beat them join them... she didn't see a problem with it before now that she is pregnant she wants to quit.. withdrawls are rough on these... her obgyn won't help us says that the chemicals were there when she got pregnant and they won't assist us in getting off of the pills I just want her to get help I will go cold turkey... please help... I have a limited income and can't afford to send her to a big nice detox center that would help her get off of them and a non medicinal detox is hell surely there is something they could do to help.. she has the will and the want shouldn't her doctor provide the way.. please help.
Please put the words suboxone and subutex into the search bar of your computer and it should give you the local doctors who can talk to you about this medicine. Subutex is usually what they give to a pregnant person. Cold turkey is an option for you, but, I am not sure it is for your pregnant wife. You could also call the local methadone clinic and talk to their staff about the suboxone/subutex program. You may be able to talk to a pharmacist about this, they should be able to give you the names of some doctors in your area who are licensed to prescribe subutex. Check with the larger pharmacies. Doctors have to take a special class and get a special license to write these prescriptions so, not all doctors can do it. Good Luck, I am saying some prayers for you both. You can also read all the post here about subutex, some do address pregnancy and subutex. Join the support group for it and you should be able to read all posts and questions.
I was addicted to perc 30 before and while i was pregnant. i asked my obgyn for help and they would do nothing but called cps. i went to a few diff doctors who said they also couldnt help me. it is realllly bad to try and quit cold turkey for the simple fact that the withdrawls with make you miscarry. So i recomend getting subutex. I stopped when i wa 33 weeks prego had my baby at 39 weeks and there isnt a thing wrong with her. She was 9lbs 5oz 22inches. passed every test they gave her the whole 9 yards.
OMG do U realize that now that Ur Dr. Knows ur both on "percoset10" that they will test the baby when born & since U join rather than quit, u both will loose that baby! True story... my opinion" She has NO right putting drugs into that unborn child! & both of U ought to be ashamed of yourselves! One thing to addict urself... NO right what that baby has in store for him/her with withdrawels... STOP NOW!
