I am so scared and dont know if i should abort. Is there any evidence that babies come out healthy?? I saw that on animals there is skeletal deformation. please help
You don't have to be so afraid. If you're otherwise healthy the baby should be fine. There is actually less danger to the baby if you stay on the subutex rather than going through opiate detox and suffering w/d. That can be dangerous. The baby would be born with a dependence to buprenorphine (drug in subutex) but the dr can taper it down slowly and the baby won't suffer.
Don't know your history on using subutex, how long you've been on it, the dose, etc. But you should see an OB/GYN about this. Trust me you won't be the dr's first opiate dependent patient. The dr should tell you exactly what I've said. Hope that helps. Don't freak out about this it will be okay. Good luck and God bless. :)
I am 30 wks pregnant with a healthy baby boy. I took suboxone for the first 4 mths then switched to subutex. I wish i could of weaned myself off the subutex but i'm not ready. Everything is fine with the baby i do know that my obgyn said that the baby will be born addicted but he will not suffer and for me not to worry.
