Hi there i am a 38 year old woman with longstanding degenerative disc disease and Fibromyalgia. I have had this for 15 years and take Zomorph (10mgs) four tablets a day and Baclofen (10mgs) six tablets a day. I have just found out that I am 6 weeks pregnant and am really worried this will harm the baby. Please can you help?
Hello and welcome!
Both of those medications are FDA pregnancy cagetory C, which means that animal studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus, but there are no adequate and well controlled studies in humans, but the potential benefits may warrant the use of the drug in pregnant women despite the potential risks.
In other words, animal trials have shown problems, but we don't know about humans, so you and your doctor need to weigh the risks and benefits and decide what to do.
Your best option would be to have your OB/GYN and the dotor who treats you for the disc disease and fibromyalgia to have a conference call with you so all three of you can discuss your options.
Congratulations on your pregnancy, and good luck!Teri
