Your child will have certain withdrawal symptoms and there is a chance of other complications as well.

It's important to let your doctor know so that your child can get treatment after delivery to help through withdrawals.

I. Just want to know if baby will be clean or will I get in trouble
Health Professional: Dr. Mo, Doctor (MD) replied 10 months ago

You wouldn't get in trouble. The baby would test positive for cocaine if the baby were to be tested but we almost never test the baby.

I have 6 more weeks before baby comes out ,I'm on cos at the moment so I and baby will be fine if I drink plenty of water
Health Professional: Dr. Mo, Doctor (MD) replied 10 months ago

It would help tremendously if you stopped now. And by then almost all traces of cocaine would be out of your system and the baby's.

Just stop the cocaine which will be a huge plus.

And drink plenty of water and eat as healthy as you can.

That will be all you need to do.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
