Acetaminophen codeine Use During Pregnancy

Advice and warnings for the use of Acetaminophen / codeine during pregnancy. FDA Pregnancy Category C - Risk cannot be ruled out.

Two cases of acetaminophen overdose in late pregnancy have been reported. In both cases neither the neonate nor the mother suffered hepatic toxicity. Investigations have revealed conflicting results with regards to the pharmacokinetic disposition of acetaminophen in pregnant women. One study has suggested that the oral clearance of acetaminophen is 58% higher and the elimination half-life is 28% lower in pregnant women compared to non-pregnant women. Another study has suggested that the elimination half-life is not different in patients who are pregnant.

Treating pain during pregnancy - Canadian Family Physician

Because of fear about use of drugs during pregnancy, some pregnant has been observed with use of codeine in late pregnancy, even with therapeutic doses.

Several forms of fentanyl, including the patch, have been on the market for many years without reports of serious adverse effects, and it is considered effective for all types of chronic pain, including cancer and non-cancer pain. 13 There is little information on its use in pregnancy, with only 2 case reports in the literature. In one, a high-dose fentanyl patch (ie, 125 μg/h) was used throughout pregnancy, and the newborn infant manifested mild withdrawal symptoms at 24 to 72 hours after birth.

No significant differences were found in the survival rate [adjusted odds ratio (OR) 0.9, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.6-1.5] or the congenital malformation rate (adjusted OR 0.9, 95% CI 0.8-1.1) between codeine-exposed and unexposed infants. Codeine use anytime during pregnancy was associated with planned Cesarean delivery (adjusted OR 1.4, 95% CI 1.2-1.7; P < 0.0001).
