Advice

Hi I am currently 32 weeks pregnant my dr prescribed me hydrocodone for migraines I've been take one 5/500 a day for about two months my questions are 1. Can I just stop or will I withdrawal?  2. Does the medicine do damage to my unborn baby such a defects and such?  And 3. If I don't take anymore till my baby is born in the next 7 weeks will she withdrawal at birth? Thank you any advice would be great I am so stressed out.

I wouldn't cut it or cold turkey but cut back slowly. Double check with your dr but you can possibly get withdrawal headaches from cold turkey

I don't think you'll withdrawal.  I was on the same thing after I got knee surgery and I didn't have a hard time getting off of it, but everybody is different. If you stop now,  your baby shouldn't have any withdrawals either.  I don't know what side effects it has on baby though

I'm not sure about the other questions but it will not hurt your baby.
