Question: Oxycotin while pregnant

 miss_kriss18 - Wed Feb 03, 2010 9:48 pm

I am currently 10 weeks pregnant and I am addicted to oxycotin. I have been smoking it throughout these 10 weeks... I am getting help friday, but what my question is, what could happen to my baby?

User avatar Hello,
There is no way to predict possible effects with early use of any drug. It's great that you are getting help because the amount of exposure is often associated with defects in a growing baby. Some exposures can cause problems with minimal exposure but the risk definitely gets more serious with ongoing use.

Good luck with your plans to stop using this substance.

Best wishes.
