I am currently 15 weeks pregnant with my very first child. I take two tremadol 50 mg a day and 1 gabapentin at bedtime for severe carpal tunnel syndrome. I have been trying to taper off before getting pregnant I went from 4 a day down to two and now I am having some trouble. Can someone please help me with concerns
Is your obstetrician helping you? I have more concerns about the gabapentin then the tramadol.
Hi, Drugs.com warns against 'high doses' (of Tramadol) being taken during pregnancy... see the link below... Ideally you should discontinue treatment, but you are on a low dose so the risks are reduced. However if you think you can cope without Tramadol during pregnancy, speak with your midwife or doctor about advise on discontinuation.
Regarding the Gabapentin, the advice is really down to 'benefit outweighing risk' when taking during pregnancy. The main concern is the slow development of bones leading to abnormalities. Again, i would discuss your options with your midwife or doctor regarding continuing with this medication... see the link below...
