Answer by trish
According to the PDR, Vicodin is in the FDA’s pregnancy category C, which means: “This medication may be harmful to an unborn baby, and could cause addiction or withdrawal symptoms in a newborn. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment.”
Use of opioid analgesics during pregnancy may cause withdrawal in baby like irritability and excessive crying, tremors, hyperactive reflexes, increased respiratory rate, increased stools, sneezing, yawning, vomiting, and fever. However, opioids are not strongly contraindicated in pregnancy. Discuss with your doctor what pain medicine is most suitable if you are pregnant.
