Hi, I'm 15wks pregnant and I've been taking Lortabs which use to be prescribed for degenative disk disease .I told my DR. that they were still being prescribed b/c I had to take a drug test.I was also prescribed Valium for my seizures which I also told her and recently I've been taken off of them,but haven't quit taking the Xanax b/c I'm severely addicted to them and sometimes take 10-15mg a day then some days don't take any or sometimes just 1or 2.I've abused these meds. b/4 & since I've been pregnant more so with the binzodiazaphines such as (Valium,Xanax,Klonipin,etc.). I've told myself the same thing I've read some of some of u say  "well since there prescribed it's safe to take"and used that to justify my actions,but I abuse them and i feel so guilty,but between my pain,seizures,and addiction I'm....lost.I'm worried a/b my baby and what will be wrong at birth like defects both mental & physical an also withdrawal. I've researched all the meds I've been taking,and they all say"May cause birth defects".N/E way I'm so glad I found this place & please n/e one who has any advice suggestions or comfort write back.Also a/b asking these doctors ?'s do i post my ?'s 4 them here to?

If you look in the right corner of the screen, it says "inbox" and if you have messages, there will be a number by it telling you how many messages, then just click on it and it takes you right to your messages. Those ones are private where you and the other person can talk one on one and here on the forum, everyone can read what you write, just so you know!!
