Hey ladies! I broke my arm this morning at work and the Dr. at the ER ave me a bottle of liquid Hydrocodone and he told me it was ok to take it but I could double check with my Dr. So ofcourse I called her today and she never called back surprise surprise. I just want to make sure I'm not gonna cause her (my baby) any harm by taking it. Please help if you can! Thanks! :)

I'd be careful with this and definitely talk to your OB first. It should be ok if taken as prescribed or less than if possible. Hydrocodone is a narcotic.

I would call the hospital and talk to a Dr. in the labor and delivery part. There's bound to be at least one Dr. there that could answer your question. Hope you're feeling better soon =]

I am a__suming, you did tell them that you were pregnant. Perhaps, call the hospital and talk to a doctor in the labor and delivery dept.... just to be sure. You can never be too sure and it can't hurt to double check. Although, if you need to, and I'm sure you will need some relief, I would take it, as prescribed and In moderation, of course. As long as you don't abuse it, everything should be ok.

I checked and hydrocodone is in risk category C, which means that it's probably not beneficial to take. The problem is it is addictive and the baby can be born addicted. If you can handle the pain until you can check with your Dr., try not to take it. If you can't stand it, go ahead and take a dose but not any more than you absolutely have to. Try and see if regular Tylenol makes the pain tolerable.
