Regardless of information posted here. You need to talk to your doctor about
medications while pregnant and/or breastfeeding.
Per www.drugs.com "FDA pregnancy category C. It is not known whether Fioricet is harmful to an unborn baby. Before taking Fioricet, tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment. Acetaminophen, butalbital, and caffeine can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. Do not use Fioricet without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby."
With that being said, I took a lot of medications while pregnant (recently) and they were prescribed by doctors/surgeons etc (all approved by my OB) I had MANY complications during pregnancy including kidney stones and surgery to remove them. My daughter turned out relatively healthy, although she was born prematurely. Seriously, it is not worth the RISK. When they classify medications as category C it means they do NOT KNOW if it is harmful to baby.
Please refer to your OWN doctor's information on this one
It's really not worth potentially harming your future baby.
I will be speaking with my doctor about
tapering off meds before getting pregnant again.
