I have 3 children and I was prescribed fioricet by my OBGYN throughout two of my pregnancies. I became addicted quickly and it wasn't hard to get my Doc. to write me a script, which is strange. This is exactly how it happened, Him: Any problems? Me: Just headaches. Him: *writes script for a "hypnotic sedative" to a young pregnant woman* I had no idea what I was taking at the time, I was 21 and trusted my doctor to not put my life or my child's life in danger. Most research points to discretion of the use of fioricet and pregnancy, if the pros outweigh the cons. To me that means I should have been asked a few questions before the script was in my hands, as I see it the doctor and patient should decide if there are any other options for solving the problem. Fioricet should have been his last resort, not his first. "I have been having headaches." should have been followed with "have you tried Tylenol?" I was NOT having horrible headaches, they were just headaches and by the time my 3rd pregnancy rolled around I was thoroughly addicted to the drug. I was taking it as directed "1-2 tablets every 4-6 hours" that was it. No "as needed" instructions, so in my mind I could justify my addictive behaviors by taking 2 every 4 hours until they were gone. After all in my mind I was taking a prescription as directed by a doctor. Some research shows that it takes only one month to become addicted to fioricet, my doctor wrote and approved a prescription for me a grand total of... 22 months! I must make it clear that I was NEVER informed of the side effects for my unborn child, potential for abuse, withdrawal symptoms (mine and my babies) by my doctor. I was never told to stop taking it in the last few months of pregnancy to avoid potential infant withdrawals and other birthing complications. I did however inform my doctor of my extreme genetic mental disorders running rampant through my family. He knew that I suffered from postpartum depression and psychosis and he was aware of my 10+ years struggle with self injury. I wonder if he knows that barbiturates are commonly used in suicide. I wonder if he understands what he did and possibly continues to do. This is my translation, my doctor gave me a legal addiction, a loaded gun, if you will. Then he sent a mentally unstable, new mother home TWICE with a newborn baby, suffering from withdrawal symptoms with no warning or explanation for what could come. I didn't understand why my children were so inconsolable. Colic is the diagnosis my doctor hid behind. I honestly don't know if he is ignorant about the drug he handing out like candy or if he just doesn't give a crap. My question is simply this... The children affected by this situation are now 6 and 3, I don't want "justice" or compensation for anything. I want to know if this has happened to anyone else? Has anyone taken fioricet regularly throughout a pregnancy? And how do I confront the doctor, because he is still practicing and possibly handing out addictions disguised as helpful medication. I don't want to get him in trouble, I want him to be informed about what he's doing and I want him to stop giving hypnotic sedatives to women at their most vulnerable times as a first resort. Sorry for the insane rant but jeeze!
