effects of suboxin on an unborn child
My sister has been taking suboxin for about 3 years now due to a heroin addiction, and she is about 6-7 months pregnant now and is still taking the suboxin daily. I am very worried as to what the suboxin can do to her unborn child. If anyone can help me out with some information that i could pass on to her about the affects on her baby that would be great. i just want her to know how bad she's really hurting her baby. Thank you!

Suboxin is a class C medication which means the effects on baby are not known and it can be taken when the benefits outweigh the risks.  There is no evidence it will harm her baby but that doesn't mean there won't be any effect.  Baby would be at risk for withdrawal after birth.

Make she that your sister works closely with her dr on this.  Her dr MUST know she is taking the medication during pregnancy to monitor her and baby appropriately.

Well it is safer for her to take the mediation than to withdrawal bc withdrawal can cause fetal death. It is very important that her dr knows about this medication so they can monitor her and her baby appropriately.
