vicodin and pregnancy

My daughter is about 26 weeks along and has kidney stone.  Her mid-wife prescribed vicodin but said not to take it everyday.  Well, there is a small problem-her pain is extreme everyday.  Can she take it once a day?

She needs to speak with her doctor regarding this issue. No one on the Internet should be answering this question as there are many factors only her doctor is aware of at hand.

I passed a 7-mm stone earlier this year...she has my sympathies! Interestingly enough, I found that using pyridium helped more than narcotics when it came to the pain. Something worth mentioning to the doctor.

we are not dr's here.. there is a risk with any med.. I had a kidney stone at about 14w.. thought I was going to die but I passed it with no meds.. it will be a decision she will have to make and live with.. good luck
