Can you take Tramadol Hydrochloride whilst pregnant?
I was in hospital from friday to monday with contractions but was sent home as was not dialating with painkillers called Tramadol Hydrochloride and was told to take 3 a day, baby has really not moved at all today and read the packet and it said that i should not take them. Are they safe? x
I'm sure tramadol is opiate based, however, if it is under consultant/doctor care at hospital and for the reasons you state, then hopefully it won't cause problems and they don't expect it to. However, it may depress the baby's respiratory system which is probably why they have said 3 per day.
If your baby hasn't moved please please go and get checked out, agree with the others it's opiate based so not recommended in pregnancy but if the consultant/doctor has prescribed them it should be fine!
the dr prescribed me some strong pain killers for my spd and it saod on the leaflet that they werent to be taken while pregnant. i rang my midwife, she looked into it for me and rang back and told me that they were fine to take and that because no medication is tested on pregnant women, alot of tablets ect say that they are not to be taken by pregnant women. she also said that the dr wouldnt prescribe somthing i wouldnt be allowed. but as others have said, if you are unsure it might be worth ringing your my so she can check for you
Most medicines just say that because they don't want to liability of calling it "safe" just in case someone wanted to blame a problem on them. I'm sure they wouldn't have given it to you if it weren't OK.
Im sure you wouldnt have been prescribed them if they were not safe but if you are worried/concerned then just call the hospital and speak to midwife... she'll probably just tell you to go in and be checked. better to be safe than sorry x
I take 100mg tramadol SR twice a day for Crohn's Disease, but then I've been taking them for 10 years now, so it was safer to continue to take them than risk bad withdrawal symptoms during the pregnancy.
I'm sure they would only prescribe them off-licence like this if they felt you needed them.
i have been prescribed codeine phosphate and propananol or severe migranes both say do not ake when pregnant i queried it with consultant and he said its fine as the dose was lowered for me but i would maybe get checked out as the reduced movements could be inked to something else hun xxxx
