Have a Conversation with your Healthcare Practitioner
If you are prescribed or taking one or more of the following prescription pain medications, talk to your healthcare practitioner about treatment or other alternatives:
Opioid pain medications, central nervous system depressants, stimulants, anti-depressants, Neurontin (gabapentin), alcohol, street drugs such as heroin or meth, and non-prescription drugs.
If you are pregnant, or may become pregnant, your baby’s health is dependent on yours. When you use a drug, tobacco, caffeine, or drink alcohol, it significantly impacts how your baby develops in the womb. Tobacco and caffeine use can have a big effect on the health of your baby. Tobacco and caffeine can be even more dangerous to your baby when combined with other drugs.
It is not too late to seek help. Contact your medical practitioner or call the Tennessee Redline at 1-800-889-9789 in order to give your baby a healthy start.
