I am a very frightened momma to be! I was using percocets

Customer Question

Hi. I am a very frightened momma to be! I was using percocets over the past month... Sometimes up to 6 5/325 per day. I quit cold turkey 30 hours ago and after reading forums I'm thinking that's not a good thing to do? I'm not yet having any withdrawal symptoms. Should I not be quitting cold turkey?

You should be working with your doctor.

You should not be taking these at all if pregnant.

Withdrawal is generally not dangerous.

Talk to your doctor immediately.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
