is it safe to take oxycodone while pregnant? i kind of figure that since it is a narcodic that the answer is probably no but i have been given cough medicine with codine before so im unsure.

I think you answered your own question (no). But to be sure, I would give your OB a call.
I can't imagine a doc prescribing you a narcotic if they knew you were pregnant. Typically, the best you can take while pregnant is tylenol.
