How is Tramadol used in pregnancy?


Answer by  Kimi (432)

The pain reliever Tramadol is pregnancy category C, which means that it might potentially harm embryos. However, animal studies show that this only happens at very high doses, several hundred times higher than normal. At standard dosage, it is generally considered safe during pregnancy.


Answer by  Tiara (351)

Tramadol is used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain, but usage should be avoided due to un-established safety guidelines. It can be harmful to an unborn baby and may cause serious side effects if used during pregnancy. If using this medication, you should not breast-feed.

Tramadol is used to treat severe & chronic pain from conditions such as fibromyalgia and sciatic nerve issues. However, studies have not demonstrated the safe usage of tramadol during pregnancy, so its use during this period, including labor & delivery, must be carefully considered, determining whether the potential benefits outweigh the risks.

Tramadol is used to control severe pain. It's a synthetically-created drug, and it's very addictive, right up there with morphine. It can be dangerous to your fetus, so be careful!

Tramadol is an FDA pregnancy category C drug, which means it isn't known if it will cause damage to the fetus. It should be avoided during pregnancy if possible.

Tramadol is used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain, but should not be used during pregnancy without consulting a doctor. Tramadol is a synthetic analgesic medication. Tramadol might cause dependence in the unborn child. Many people think that Tramadol is an NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) but it is not.
