obviously they are not safe to take ANYTIME during pregnancy.. the only pain reliever you should take is tylenol. The risks are low-birthweight, complications during delivery, and it increases the risk of hemorrhage at delivery and bleeding problems in your new born. Also it can cause severe side-effects.

i have a herniated disc, and have darvoset for my back, and surprisingly my dr. said it's as safe to take once in awhile as tylenol. tylenol just does not cut the pain, though if i need it, i take just a hair. i would not recommend it in the third trimester. xoxo mandee

No Vicodin my doctor told me i shouldn;t even take tylenol until my second trimester so i know vicodin is no good

Just so you know, I was perscribed Vicoden while pregnant and I confirmed with three doctors and a pharmicist that it is safe if taken as perscribed. Do not take it over a long period of time as it could case addiction with your fetus. Hope this helps!!!

I was told the safest is plain acetaminophen. I was given demerol for ovarian cysts in the first trimester of my 1st pregnancy though.
