Hi I'm a mother of 18 month old twins who were born on Methadone and did very well soon after birth I stated taking suboxone. I've been on suboxone for over a year and that's all I've taken u til the last month where I took a one milligram Xanax daily. I found out yesterday I am pregnant, very early I haven't even missed my period yet but just knew and took an early test. I plan to call my doctor on Monday to switch to subutex my main concern is all the Xanax I took. Could this Xanax have harmed the baby so early in pregnancy??
My doctor told me that in very early pregnancy, for about the first 6 weeks, that the baby is not feeding off the mother yet, it is simply starting to develop with what is already in the egg. Your Doctor is the one who will answer this question best tho, so, make sure you discuss this with him. I was freaking out because I had taken alka seltzer cold for a week or so, and he reassured me, but that doesn't mean I am saying that people should count on this info. Make sure both doctors know about the xanax use and the suboxone/subutex use. Congrats on your good news.
Congrats on your news.
As patti said its very early days so i would'nt think there's anything to worry about but even so,you should check with your doc about the xanax and suboxone,it's better to get to see the doc asap for your own piece of mind.
Good luck with everything and take care you and baby
