Pregnancy and narcotic withdrawal

My DIL just found out she was pregnant and had been taking Vicodin and Xanax up until now. She has stopped these meds but wants to know what effect, if any, the withdrawal will have on the fetus and what effect the use would have on the fetus.

Thanks in advance

If she stopped as soon as she found out she was pregnant and is still in the early first trimester there is a good chance there won't be any effect on baby. It is continual use, specifically when the placenta has formed (around week 8-10) where the most damage is done. Little one shouldn't have withdrawal effects early on either.

When in doubt ask a medical professional. We are not medical professionals and only offer our opinions and ideas.
