    ceades,

     

    -:¦:-•:*'""*:•.-:¦:-•*Welcome to MyMigraineConnection!*•-:¦:-•:*'""*:•.-:¦:-

     

    It's simply not safe for anyone but your own OB/GYN to answer this question. The answer depends on more than just knowing that you're pregnant. Nobody has any business answering this without knowing your full medical history and examining you in person.

     

    That said, I can give you some general information that you can discuss with your doctor. Percocet is FDA pregnancy category C. This means one of two things:

     

    1.  that animal studies have shown an adverse effect and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women.
    or
    2. that no animal studies have been conducted and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women.

     

    With category C medications it's important for a pregnant woman to work with her doctor to weigh the risks to the baby against the benefits to the mother in order to make a good decision.

     

    Good luck!
