I am currently 8 weeks pregnant and have been on prescribed oxycodone 30mg 3x a day for the past 8 years. I do not want to take it during my pregnancy and have been trying to self taper but scared withdrawals will cause a miscarriage. This baby is so loved and wanted its just unfourtunate i have 11 discs in my neck n spine that are in some way outta wack on top of Rheumotoid Arthritis which i am on no meds for. I want to try to switch to subutex and then taper off that and be totally free of addictive meds by 6 mos and have a non addicted baby with no need to withdrawal. Please will someone tell me who to approach about the subutex my pain management doc or my ob. My ob is well aware of my prescribed pain meds.

Hello, Preggers! How are you? Congratulations on the baby!

It would be best to talk to your OB about it, because they can then refer you to a doctor that knows how to handle this type of thing for pregnant women.

The FDA classifies this medication as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and constipation.

What is your due date?
