hi.so i have been on subs for a year and a half and i have been weaning myself off of because i found out i am pregnant and don't want to harm my baby. i weaned down to .5mg and i was wondering if anyone knew of anything safe to take for pregnant women to lessen my withdrawals? mainly leg pain/cramps.i know tylenol is safe but is there anything else i can also take?? anything would help. thanks!! :)
You should speak with your OB about this but I am pretty sure its ok to take sub while pregnant. However you are making a good move getting off it and have a valid reason. I would try to ween down even.more by taking crumbs.and then start taking it every other day and then every 2 days etc. This will make the wd as.mild as possible. I do not know of any other things u can safely take other than vitamins ans supplements. Google the Thomas recipe but check with your doc to make sure all is safe tl take with the baby. Good luck
conratulations on your pregnancy. how far along are you? what dose of subs were you on and how fast did you taper? you should speak with your sub doctor and your ob/gyn as soon as possible. you wouldnt want to cause any harm to your baby by tapering wrong. the baby will feel the withdrawals even if you dont.
Definitely talk to your ob and sub doctor. In the past there have been other pregnant women come here for advice. When pregnant, sub doctors make the switch from suboxone to subutex because it doesn't have naloxone in it.
