i recently had a baby and i tested positive for xanax. the cps took him from me and say i can get him back in 3-6 months after i go to court and do my classes. i was wrong for taking the drug. i just took it for my depression and to help me sleep. but i'm not here to justify it. i'm not here to make excuses. i lost my baby temporarily. i dont need any bashing please i know what i did was wrong and i own up to my mistakes. i have learned the hard way. anyway will my dr drug test me now or will he leave it up to the cps for that? i will be getting random drug tests already. so will he drug test me when i go in for my visit? please people do not start bashing on me ok i already know what i did was wrong and i feel really... just lost. i am really depressed so please just answer the question. i dont need your personal opinion. thanks
I'm assuming the doctor visit is for a post natal checkup? If you stopped taking the xanax when your baby was born, and you haven't taken them since, I am pretty sure it should come up clean if your doctor tests you. When you get your baby back, raise him with all the love and care a mother can give. At least it wasn't crack or heroin... I'm not condoning the xanax, but do the right thing and remember this moment. I wish you well, and congratulations on the birth of a beautiful baby boy!
hey lost soul, this is brent here, my gosh, I do think that is was so harsh for them taking Your children away like that. ALL OF US do what it is that we feel like we need to do to get by. o k, yeah, so You probably should have had a doctors prescription before You took the xanax, and everything would have probably been, in my mind, alright. I just think that was WAY TOO HARSH for them to do that to You. I know You said You did not want opinions, but I just felt like I had to tell You that. I know that I'm gonna hear about it from some of my friends on here for telling You this, for my opinion, but it's just the way that I feel. I read on here, all the time, from mothers-to-be, asking "is it o k to take my xanax, I'm 5 months pregnant", and I don't recall of hearing a lot of "negative" response on it. Everybody pretty much says "You should check with Your doctor, FIRST", so there is the mistake, and I MAY could see them, maybe "leaning" on You a bit for it, but taking them away? I just can't see that! Again, just my opinion, but I personally think that it is doing WAY TOO MUCH harm than good. Sweetie, my advice, is, JUST AS FAST AS YOU CAN, go and see Your doctor, and tell him that the xanax is needed, for Your anxiety, and, to help You sleep, and maybe, if everything is then "legit", it might help Your plight. And to all my friends here that might feel compelled to bash on me for this answer, please, I think this young lady needs her kids back. I don't see where she's a bad mother AT ALL. That's my 2 cents. Hope it helps You lost soul, and I hope You get Your kids back really soon. Good luck to You.
