    Would like information on being pregnant and being on buprenorphine. I am in a rehab and the nurses won't let me taper down.

    Hi melodyv10,

    Have you spoken to a doctor at the rehab about the fact that you are taking buprenorphine while you are pregnant? He/she might determine that the risks of you being off the drug surpass the risks of you being off the drug. Or he/she might advise you to switch to another medication, which may be safer for a developing baby. Ultimately, your pregnancy needs to be monitored very closely by a medical professional during this time.

    Here are links to information on WebMD that you might find helpful, but please make arrangements to see a doctor as soon as possible.

    1. Information on buprenorphine for Drug Dependence
    2. Information on taking prescription medications during pregnancy
    3. Buprenorphine is prescribed in various different forms. You should check out WebMD's Drug & Medications center , where you can look up more information on buprenorphine and read user reviews on the drug. You might be able to find someone who was in a similar situation and found a solution.
