Pregnant, had unknowingly taken tylonol, codine, painkillers. Harmful for fetus?
Hi just found out I.am. pregnant and my last period . was January 13th I took tylonol.with codine, advil , alieve, and meperdine for pain not knowing for two weeks and now I.am scared because I have know idea what the affects are because of this?? Please help!
Thanks for the query.
Tylenol,codeine ,aleve,Meperdine come under FDA category c for pregnancy.That means Fetal risk revealed in studies in animals but not established or not studied in humans.There is some risk involved here.
In case of Advil Fetal it is Category D .That means risk shown in humans; it is used only if benefits outweigh risk to fetus.You can discuss with your doctor the amount of days you have taken and whether it outweighs the possibilities of any risk.
