Methadone is usually not stopped during pregnancy, if the mother has been on it for a long time, though the baby may experience some side effects, when it is born and could also suffer some minor withdrawals. However, suddenly stopping it can be far more dangerous, because if you go into severe withdrawals it could result in miscarriage, according to the NIH.

Benzodiazepines, such as Klonopin, should usually not be taken during the first trimester, however, abruptly stopping it creates the risk of seizures, so it is best done via a slow taper, under doctor's supervision.

And, as always, while pregnant, that is the best thing to do, always follow your doctor's advice. They've experience dealing with this type of thing, they've seen it all, before.

Congratulations on the pregnancy!

Is there anything else I can help with?
