Im not a professional in anyway, but I have the same concern. My doctor told me that he has had patients that have taken steriods while pregnant, but he would prefer you DONT. He said it is possible that the steriods can mess with the growth of the baby. I'm 3 months pregnant and was taking prednisone for the first two months. Everything looks fine so far. The baby has only two arms and 10 fingers, it appears that there are no extra limbs or missing limbs. :O) I look forward to hearing from a doctor or someone who knows more info on this subject.

Studies on animals show adverse effect and toxicity on fetus. No adequate and well controlled studies done on pregnant women. Drugs should be given only if the potential benefit outweighs the potential risk to the fetus.

Lortabs contain a synthetic narcotic, hydrocodone. It could affect the fetus. If your doctor prescribed it, stick to the dosage recommendations. If you get it on the street, don't do it.
