I took roxys my whole pregnancy with my son and he was born healthy and normal. Now let me say that was the only thing i was taking and did all my prenatal care as told by my dr. I was taking 10 roxys. Im an iv user. But i don;t recommend taking chances with your pregnancy because the more you take the higher your chances of your baby being born in withdrawl. I've seen babies in withdrawl and its horrible. I was lucky and my son was completely healthy and still is!

I know this is over a year later but I just wanted thank you because even though everyone is different I'm in the same exact boat as you and you just made me feel so much better and for that I'm grateful!!! I'm currently cutting down my roxy dosage amount to lessen the chance of withdrawal for my son so wish me luck!!!!!!!!!!

A family member of mine is pregnant and on roxy's. She has cut back TREMENDOUSLY and wants to get completely off of them. What I was wondering is where I would I find information about the laws on: Does Department of child services take their babies after they have them or do they let them take them home and just monitor the mother's? We are in Florida.

I used all thru my pregnancy with my son and never told the doctor's. My son came out 7lbs 12oz, completely healthy. No withdrawals. Nothing happen i took him home next day...My friend just had her baby and she told her doctor she was using, her baby came out with no withdrawals, and completely healthy too, but they got child protection involved(because she let them know she was using and they drug test her and the baby) and they let her take the baby home, but did a home study and drug test her weekly.
This was a while ago for both of us i heard now that they drug test everyone mother and child now because of the pill problem...i don't know if that's true but i think i saw it on the news.

Just something I'd like to add, no good competent doctor is going to let anyone IV use a medication that is in tablet form. It is very dangerous, because there may be fillers in the tablet that aren't expected to be broken down by the human body and are normally just expelled as waste. Injecting them carries the risk of them creating blockages, which could lead to heart attack, stroke or embolism.....and it's even more dangerous when pregnant.

And yes, regardless of your location, if a doctor knows that you are using illegally, while pregnant, by law they are supposed to report it.

There are several dangers involved, such as the ones to the health of the mother and baby, with the possibility of the baby being born addicted. The other is that a drug addicted mother may not be a suitable parent, she may neglect the child, once they are home and unsupervised.

I am not trying to say that anyone that posted here was or is a bad mother, I am just presenting the concerns and legalities that a doctor has to deal with in such situations.

Are there any questions or comments?

I am pregnant and almost due to have my baby. If I start now can there be a good chance that my baby will not be born with anything in her system and no withdraws. I am very worried about that and my doctor doesnt know. I just dont want to go throught the system and dont want my baby born with anything in her system. I know im wrong for doing it but I want my baby to be normal when she is born. Someone please let me know something

I am also in FL, Tampa. What did you find out about that? I take roxys and just found out I was pregnant. I heard they are cracking down and when you go in for your first appt (mine is Wednesday) they can give you a drug panel, and if they find anything in your body that you are not prescribed they monitor you throughout the pregnancy; and on day of delivery they will diagnose you and if you come up postive DCF will be called. Any answers would be greatfull' thanku!!!
