I just got off drugs and went on methadone to help my opioid withdrawal. But I just found out I am pregnant, is it safe to continue on methadone?

Yes it is safe for you and your baby if you continue your methadone. Congrats on your new bundle and good luck with your journey

Yes Opioid withdrawal usually will not kill an adult but it will cause serious harm to a fetus, up to and including death from miscarriage or pre-term labor. I suggest staying on methadone during your pregnancy.
