Is it safe to stop taking methadone when pregnant?
No, stopping the use of methadone during a pregnancy could be dangerous to the unborn child and can result in a miscarriage.
Yes its safe. I don't know what kind of "safe" you're talking about if its about getting pregnant then no if you stop taking them you will most likely get pregnant.
It is actually safe to take milk thistle while you are pregnant.
You need to discuss this with your pain management and / or OB doctor. For your health and your baby's health.
It is not considered safe to taper off Methadone during a pregnancy due to the possible stress on the fetus. The studies have not conclusively proven that Methadone is toxic to a pregnancy. Any pregnancy that does taper off of Methadone must be done in-patient so that monitoring of the fetus can be performed. Please see the related link below for more information.
Yes, but make sure that the suboxone is out of your system before taking methadone. Combining methadone and suboxone can cause severe withdrawals.
You can, but only if your doctor will prescribe it for you.
If you have a tolerance for methadone and just suddenly stop taking it, you will begin to experience withdrawals such as nausea, body aches, hot and cold sweats, and diarrhea. You should slowly taper off of methadone instead of quitting cold turkey.
Yes it can but once you know your pregnant stop
No as you have stopped taking the pill you can get pregnant the first time you have sex.
if your in a methadone clinic i would stop taking all drugs and get your life together
Yes, plain and simple. Methadone will also cause dependance and withdrawal for the baby. But it is not recommended that you stop methadone if you get pregnant and are are on it already as withdrawal symptoms on the mother can harm the fetus.
No. It will not stop you from getting pregnant.
It's not a very safe idea to take Adderall while trying to conceive.
You kind of don't. Methadone is addictive. There will be withdrawal; you should probably consult a physician for ways to minimize this withdrawal.
If you're pregnant, then your periods will stop. Also, if you are pregnant, you SHOULD NOT be taking the pill.
Yes. Methadone is very effective in its treatment of opiate addiction and makes it more manageable. Methadone helps you function more and lasts much longer than oxycodone so you only have to take one dose a day to feel fine. It is important that you are under a doctors supervision when using methadone and that you do not start off taking too much. It is very dangerous when you take your first doses of methadone… Read More
Yes you can definitely become pregnant while taking the pill. I am proof of that and I never missed a dose. :) If you are pregnant you must stop taking the pill.
Safety is not the issue. The pill only stops your periods. Once you stop taking the pill, you can become pregnant within a month or two - depending how fertile you are.
Yes. If you stop taking your birth control you are at higher risk of becoming pregnant than before you started taking it. Especially at a younger age. I was on birth control and quit taking it for a week and now I am four months pregnant.
Taking or not taking a pill before, after or during your menstrual period does not make you pregnant. Sexual intercourse does that.
Yes, methadone is an opiate blocker and will block the effects of heroine. ---------------------------------- Improvement Methadone does not contain an opiate blocker at all. It has a cross-tolerance with opioids, and higher doses of methadone can reduce the high: but from first hand experience I can tell you categorically that methadone does not totally block the high you get from taking heroin.
If you had sex Yes. After you stop taking the pill then you might get pregnant
If you are asking how long it affects the nervous system, it is 3.8 hours.
You shouldn't stop taking them. It would be bad. You can still get pregnant on the medication. In my family hypothryoidism runs in our family and I'm here.
You might make yourself and your baby very sick. I would stop immediately and set up an appointment with your doctor just to be on the safe side.
This will result in the onset of withdrawal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sweats, and body aches.
Can you get pregnant if you stop taking the birth control pill in the middle of the pack and stop having sex?
If you don't have sex, you won't get pregnant.
My doctor says it is not safe to stop eltroxin without medical supervision. I don't like eltroxin either.
You can stop taking them whenever, but you risk the chance of getting pregnant while off of them
Number one..You should not do drugs when you are carrying a baby..I have a granddaughter that was exposed to methadone at birth...Of course my daughter did not inform me that this was going to happen..It was not a pleasant surprise..But once she found out she was pregnant, she was honest with her doctor and she was told she could not stop taking the drug because she could do more harm to the unborn child, she… Read More
You should NOT be taking the pill while pregnant! STOP immediately. Next time you have an appointment with your obstetrician, let him/her know that you were taking the pill. There is absolutely no reason to continue taking the pill while you are pregnant, you cannot get pregnant again.
Most women stop after they find out if their pregnant or not but if you suspect that you may be pregnant it's best to cut back or stop until you know for sure.
Im 6 weeks pregnant and have been taking doxycycline for acne what are the chances it will have affects on my baby if you stop taking it now?
STOP taking it and call your doctor ASAP!!!
The bleeding is the withdrawal bleed and is normal. This occurs when you stop taking birth control for over a few days. You can become pregnant.
The "Pill" is deemed to be safe from causing any form of sterility, so if we are to trust & believe the medical folks, the answer is NO!. when you stop taking the pill you should be just as fertile as you would have been on that day anyway.
When you want to get pregnant.

Severe respiratory depression and low blood pressure, which could stop your heart. It is very dangerous to mix Xanax and Methadone, anyone will tell you that. I know MANY people who have died because of this combination.
It takes a week or so depending on your weight and level of dependence.. The reason you can't get high on opiates while on methadone is because the methadone is so powerful and long lasting that it masks the effects of any other opiates you try to use..
Only your doctor can tell you for sure.
When is my safiest day to have safe sex if i took birth control pills for 4 days and then i stop using it?
there is no safe days if you only took it for four days, its only effective from the first day of your period if you take it consistently, if you start during the month then you need to be on it for a month before its fully effective, only 4 days taking it is not going to stop you getting pregnant. its not worth the risk, start taking it again or use a condom.
normal monophasic birth control pills are out of your system apprx 24 hour after you stop taking them. Not that you will necessarily get pregnant right away, but the possibility exists that soon.
If you stop the birth control pill after taking only four, you could get pregnant. You might have spotting. There are not other risks or issues.
Depends on what type of pain killer you are taking. Over the counter Id say just stop taking them. If you are taking narcotic opioids, you can quit cold turkey and go through the agonizing withdrawls, you can go into a rehab center, or you have the choice of weening off with the help of a methadone clinic, or a suboxone program.
Little to none. Many women are taking birth control when they find out they are pregnant and then stop taking it.
Yes, but if you have been taking the pill like prescribed, you probably aren't pregnant. make sure you are pregnant before stopping the pill otherwise you will be pregnant pdq
I conceived whilst taking it, so NO. :-)
Methadone will not cure your heroin addiction. It will only keep you from going through withdrawal if you continue taking it. Once you stop taking the methadone, you will start going into withdrawal. Methadone, as well as Suboxone, are opiate antagonists. They feed your physical dependence on opiates, and they block an opiate high, so even if you relapse and start using heroin again, you won't get high on it. Heroin, Suboxone, methadone, opium, hydrocodone… Read More
Yes you should stop taking the pill. Perform a pregnancy test prior to stopping the pill.
