My best friend is pregnant and snorts her prescription so i was just wondering what the effects on the fetus were taking subutex as directed, dissolving it under your tongue vs snorting it?

I had my second child this past may, and Ive been on 12 to 16mg subutex per day for the last 6 years. both of my children are fine, I even breastfed them on the meds. its NOT recommended to stop taking subutex when pregnant because of the stress it would put on both mother and baby, as well as the risk of relapse on harder drugs. they need to tell their doctors they're on it, because if they don't and it shows up on the babys first urine screen [ for drugs ] they will get CPS involved.

I don't know much on this except that the bioavailability is higher while snorting. When you take it under tongue I believe you get about half the actual dose compared to maybe about 70% the other way.

I would like to know if snorting makes it harmful in anyway to the fetus as well. Snorting or orally, does it make a difference other than the fact that it reaches your bloodstream faster and you get a slightly higher percentage of it.

I am very disappointed. Primarily in regard with the majority of misinformation that so many have posted in response to those out there that have important questions, concerns, and need guidance. Specifically in relation to both use of buprenorphine ie SUBOXONE, SUBUTEX, Bupronex as well as use of these prescription medications during pregnancy. If you have questions feel free to ask me. I have over 19 yrs experience with opioid dependency and the first thing you should know is that it is circumstantial to each and every person. I'm ashamed of all the black and white replies as though there is no grey. Therefore, if you have a question see a medical Doctor. I'm here if you want opinions from experience or need guidance on how to approach your concerns. Note this is not medical advice nor should it be interpreted as such.

I know that this post was a long time ago, but did your babies have to stay in the NICU? My first daughter was born almost 2 years ago, and they found no trace of subutex in her system, yet they kept her in the NICU for a week, "monitoring" her. I'm due with #2 in 3 weeks, and even though my prescription clearly says "for pain" not for opioid dependence, they still treat me like an addict in the hospital. I switched to subs while I was pregnant from pain meds, because I have a chronic pain condition, and will be staying on them for a bit to see if it controls the pain after pregnancy. I'm just hoping not to have a NICU stay in my baby's first week! Thanks!

Your friend is irresponsible and asking for a brain damaged, addicted baby. I could just cry reading that. I have been trying to get pregnant for YEARS. I can't have children. It would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. And this i**** gets pregnant and didn't realize what a gift she's been given. This is when you stop doing any drug no matter what. What I would give to have a child...and your "friend," had a child in her belly that she is either killing, it making certain that baby had a hellish existence. She should be turned in for endangering an unborn child. Jesus. Get an abortion before you take, or ingest in any way, a drug like OXYCONTIN or ANY drug. She's sick. So sick and selfish that she doesn't care about anything but her own sick satisfaction. People like that should be given drugs until they go into withdrawal and then made to suffer without any help. That's what this baby will go through. I've held babies like this, what she is doing to this innocent baby should be attempted murder. This baby did not ask for a piece of s*** mother like that, nor did the baby ask to be addicted to opiates. Makes me sick. You should be ashamed of yourself for letting her do it without turning her in! If it's you, you should get help. Don't have a baby if you can't be unselfish.

That is the most misleading information! Please do NOT listen to this woman! 12-16 mgs?! Your child is NOT fine. It's not possible. Don't spread this dangerously incorrect informationtoo anyone! Please! Do you really want people to think it's ok to take drugs while pregnant? What's wrong with you!? Yes, one should NOT go off of suboxone while pregnant. You are right about that. But, how about this...DON'T GET PREGNANT WHILE YOU'RE on DRUGS OF ANY KIND. AT ALL. We don't need any more mentally ill souls whose illnesses could've been prevented. I hope you're getting your children checked every 3 months. You're NOT in the clear, don't think you are. I'm an obgyn. Your child will suffer a myriad of problems later in life thanks to your ignorance. You should have better common sense than that. Doctors aren't all good at what they do. Many of them in America are in it solely for the money. They do not care. I'm so sick of seeing this happen to innocent children. It's the worst thing you could do. Their brains aren't halfway developed, they're NOT fine. Believe me. You didn't escape what you did.

You obviously have no idea what you are talking about... Maybe do some research before you act like a know it all.
