I had to go to pain mngmt due to opiate dependency during pregnancy to get on Suboxone. While I was there I indicated my panic attacks that I have had for years were getting worse and asked if there was anything that I could take. Well he put me on 2mg of klonipin 2xa day. I never took the 2nd one only the one at night to make me sleep. Now I am reading about "floppy baby" syndrome and all of the major risk of taking this med while pregnant. I am now 28 wks and so far by ultrasounds and bloodwork my ob/gyn says that all is ok... but how am i not to worry? I know about all of the risk of The sub's (not to worried about that) but alll the reading and research i have been doing on klonipin is really just kicked in when i seen this site and seen it was a class D and now i am freaking out... please help me understand why he perscribed this medication knowing that it is harmful... my baby seems to be doing well although i have noticed not to be as active as i had expected for a 1st pregnancy and i am scared to death. Please no one that is going to be judging me to answer, just people with information or simular situations... thank you and God bless all and HELP!
Oh god no we are not here to judge at all we are here to help please remember that! Now lets see you only have taken one? i really want to say you will be fine i dont think you should be to concerned at all. Its when pregnant women that dont want to stop that this happens to. If you are worried though i would refer to your ob/gyn and discuss with them this matter but i truely think you and your baby are still in the saftey zone on this one. You dont need to be stressed out not good for baby so please dont worry you are fine okay. If you have any more questions for us please dont hesitate to post im so glad you came here. We are not here to judge anyone if that was the case here there would be no drugs.com that is part of the reason we are here to help and not judge:)
I so agree- your best way of helping yourself and your baby is to relax and just enjoy this last trimester- you only took one and remember you have not been pregnant before so you don't have a frame of reference for how active your baby should be. I do suggest you directly ask the doctor- voice your concerns and make him accountable, perhaps keep him from prescribing it again.
Relax and pamper yourself- you will be pressed for sleep time and relax time soon enough! Please keep us posted- we care here.
