Vicoden is one of the few drugs that SEEMS to have no adverse reactions to the unborn fetus. However, as with any other substance/controlled substance, it is always better to be safe than sorry and not to take these medications while pregnant. On a further note, Vicoden is a medication designed to target pain that is muscular/joint/etc.-related. It will NOT help a headache or migraine, and is not designed for that. Not only do I know this medically (my profession), but I have known people to try it -- unsuccessfully. If you are taking Vicoden (or Lortab, Hydrocodone, etc.) for a headache, the only thing it will do is increase your chances of becoming an addicted mother. It is also a depressant; and can cause you to feel tired, unmotivated, and eventually even depressed. For the best possible outcome here, which would be a healthy mother and a healthy baby, skip the narcotics all together.

Is it safe to take vicodin while pregnant?

No, vicodin is not safe for the baby because it contains a narcotic.Add on: Actually, vicodin is one of the few controlled substances that has (so far) not shown to have any adverse reactions on the unborn baby. However, taking any narcotic or strong medication while pregnant is never recommended, and researchers are not yet certain if it causes any developmental, or other kind of disabilities later in the child's life.

When you are pregnant is it normal to have severe headaches?

A lot of women have migraines while pregnant. I even did. I was told that it was from the hormone changes. Let your doctor know that you are having migraines and see what they can suggest. I had a headache every single day while I was pregnant. While I am prone to chronic migraines (from ligament damage in neck), I mostly suffered from actual but very bad headaches. You can take tylenol, but if that doesn't work, it is totally safe in most cases to take narcotics (lortab, vicodin, percocet, etc...), but NOT asprin. Pregnancy causes considerable fluid retention in the mucuous membranes, which can also contribute to sinus infections & sinus headaches. Good luck
