I have been taking percocet for about 2 yrs now and the dr has had me on percocet and xanax for my anxiety. I recently found out that the baby can suffer from withdrawl (withdrawal) and it would not be good to stop taking now?? Has anyone been through this and does anyone have advice?
I would love to know the same thing , me and my fiance have recently been trying to concieve (conceive) . He has been on percocets now for about a year and a half , and something that always runs through my mind ,is can it have any type of side affects if i was to get pregnant ???
You need to talk with your doctor about a tapering routine. If you continue to take percocet during the 3rd trimester your baby is at a high risk for withdrawals symptoms including respiratory distress after birth.
