Hi Frolove,
Whenare you giving birth?
How long will you have been on hydro by the time you give birth?
If it is only a  few weeks, I would say no...its all good.
Hydo is very addictive (been there due to illness) but if it is within a certain time period, baby will be fine.
why do you need to take it, by the way?
Good luck!

hi
i have been taking it for 1 week and  will be done tomorrow ( sat 9/5 ) for bad back pain  and i just found out my dr want to induce me on wed 9/9.  i will be off of it for 4 days before i give birth and i just wanted to make sure my baby won't be going through withdrawals after he is born. i know i will be fine and wont have withdrawals, i am worried for him.  i wasn't taking it for long so i think he will be fine, i am just worried and thought maybe someone else had gone through the same thing. i know its really addictive thats why i was thinking he could have withdrawals.
thank you for your response

I don't think your baby will experience any withdrawal symptoms in light of the fact that you've only taken hydrocodone for a week.  I'm so sorry for your sprain!  I deal w/chronic pain - I had to take pain meds throughout my entire pregnancy for a neck fusion.

I did go through the same thing - Noah had a few withdrawal signs the first week but it was slight especially in comparison w/what I took and the fact that I took it my entire pregnancy.
