Okay so you need to one hundred percent make your way to a doctor. This question is not one to be taken lightly. You could be putting your baby at risk. Go to the doctor as soon as possible.

From whar I know, pregnant women are supposed to take Subutex not suboxone.

You should absolutely talk to your doctor about this rather than trusting the advice of anyone posting on a forum, simply because the answer is most likely on a case by case basis. Its not typically recommended for a woman to stop an opiate maintenance program because of the stress it could cause on the baby, however, if you are young, healthy, few other risk facts, or even just taking a low dose, it may be better for the baby if you do. This is why the best answer will come from your doctor who knows your medical history and can best advise you.

Since this hasn't been answered in a while, (years actually) and there is no specific answer given from personal experience an since I'm sure this will be looked at more after this.. I will reply. Okay, so, when you get pregnant they will stop the suboxone and swap you to subutec. It's safer for you and the baby. I personally have went through this and now have a healthy almost 3 year old, that weighed 7pnds.4oz at birth!! He thankfully didn't have any withdrawal from the medication taking 1 1/2 a day. As long as it's taken correctly, you shouldnt have no worries about anything. At least this has been the case for myself an many others. Try joining some Facebook groups about this subject. It's awesome being able to talk freely about this subject with other moms who went through the same thing. Anyway, i hope this helps someone!!
