Is it safe to take codeine when pregnant?
Duff81 has no clue what he is talking about.. Codeine is dangerous to take when pregnant. Dont do it.
yes I was given a prescription at 35 weeks
Just to clarify, acetaminophen (paracetamol, APAP) is a painkiller, codeine is an opoid painkiller, and cetirizine is an antihistamine. If you take them at the recommended …doses, it should be fine. Remember to take in to consideration the other product warnings (eg. don't take while pregnant, if you have kidney disease etc). However I assume you want to take Cetirizine because you are taking large or recreational doses of codeine and you are getting the itches. In this case, it may be dangerous to take cetirizine with the codeine as they both cause depression of the central nervous system and their combined effect in a high enough dose would be enough to kill you. Even on their own they could kill you from respiratory arrest (you stop breathing). Also be careful if you are taking high doses of the acetaminophen and codeine tablets. There is generally enough acetaminophen to kill you or at least do some serious damage, long before you will get high from the codeine. If you insist on taking a larger than recommended dose, at least look up cold water extraction and do this on the tablets first if you want to minimise your chances of harm.
No, all of these have a basic same substance or result and can be harmful together.
In general yes. However be advised, some cough syrups contain stimulating agents to counteract the sedative nature of codeine; that is, they may contain pseudoephedrine. Long …story short, if you find yourself heavily stimulated by coffee, use in moderation if the syrup contains other stimulants.
This drug is horrible for a baby. This drug will cause growth problems in the future. Never take drugs when you are pregnant. Actually, some drugs are ok to take according to… doctors, but the fewer drugs you take, including over the counter ones and herbal remedies, the better for your baby. You'll need to call your doctor to find out if it's safe to take it-you don't want to risk your baby. Even if dr. says it's ok, you want to use it as sparingly as possible-doctors don't know everything. A few months of suffering is going to be so worth it when you see your new baby. Take Care.
yes in moderation
Yes, the combination is safe. You can take 600mg ibuprofen up to 4 times daily if needed. Take it with plenty of water and with food in your stomach
The codeine is a pregnancy category C medication which can have a reaction to the fetus so it should be avoided unless under a doctor's supervision.
If you are allergic to opiates in general then taking roxicet is a terrible idea, there are tests that can be done to determine if your allergic or not.
As a general rule, no; however, this should be discussed with the pregnant patients treating MD and OB/GYN for the best course of treatment and risk/benefit analysys.
ya, but dont take more than 1000 mg's of acetamiophen in 6 hours,it can cause liver damage,
Codeine is not safe to be used in asthamatic child.
i have a bottle of ic promethazine codeine syrup that i think is expired and i have a bad cough will it harm me?
If you were prescribed codeine by two different doctors, then you should ask a pharmacist or one of the doctors first before taking both of them. If the second doctor that pre…scribed the codeine to you doesn't know you're already taking it, then him prescribing it to you was an error. Taking two types of codeine together is effectively taking a larger dose. Taking too large of a dose of powerful drugs like codeine is dangerous. On the other hand, if a single doctor prescribed both to you, and told you to take both of them, then you probably should.
