PLEASE READ HER POST PEOPLE. She is about to have her first baby in about a week. The Thomas Recipe is DANGEROUS for a pregnant woman. VERY VERY DANGEROUS. You need to STOP dishing out generic advice about suboxine or the Thomas Recipe to everyone who posts here. It's not the answer for everyone, particularly here. Sedatives like valium could be DEADLY for a fetus.
If you are pregnant and taking that amount it is a very serious thing.
PLEASES TALK TO YOUR DR AND BE HONEST, BE VERY VERY HONEST.
I am not trying to scare youu but the baby will most likelyy be born addicted and will have to go through withdrawals, which can be taken care of relatively easily BUT the doctors HAVE to know aboutit.
Also, if you are not honest and the baby IS born addicted they might get child services involved.
I wish I had kinder words for you and I wish I was able to tell you that things will be all right but I don't know that.
I was prescribed pain killers while I was pregnant but stopped WAY before delivery.
My heart goes out to you and you will be in my prayers but I think your ONLY optionis to COME COMPLETELY CLEAN with your ob/gyn so they can help the both of you.
DO NOT detox now before the baby is born. You can go into pre-term labor because of the stress it will put on your body. Your best bet is to keep taking them and detox after the baby is born.
I didn't see that you were a male.......
So forget allmost everything I said BUT I still thnk you should talk to your dr. You won't be any help to your wife/girlfriend and the new baby if you're in physical anguish from withdrawing.
This is a horrible and painful sickness. 17 years old and already addicted to vicodin. I broke my arm about 10 months ago playing football. What I can say is that there is a bright side. I feel like the pain and depression has made me a lot stronger in the end. I know I haven't been hooked as long as many people on here, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Many people say that you can't overcome this without medication. By my experience, I was able to overcome this by sheer will power. It gets better, why get off one pill just to get addicted to an even more addicting or more harmful pill.
I used to think addiction was just a made up thing, now I realize how naive I was. You will feel horrible for a bit, and you won't feel right for awhile, but like I said, it gets better
