Suboxone is showing better results than Methadone in regards to NAS. All methadone babies withdrawal while not all sub babies do and the ones that don't don't suffer anything like methadone babies. I gave birth to three children while on Suboxone .. My doctor switched me to Subutex with my last pregnancy but I didn't do well and switched back. All three of my babies were breech .. 1 was delivered vaginal , 2 were c sections .. All were girls between 6 and 7 pounds. None of them had any signs of withdrawal what so ever but they were kept extra days to be monitored because of subs long half life. The lowest dose I was on was 16 mgs & the highest was 32 mgs. My high risk ob told me do not lower your dose.. In the early stages of pregnancy lowering the dose can cause miscarriage and in the end stages it will cause premature labor .. It happened to me at 28 weeks but thank god I ended up going on to carry her full term. Please don't think because she is on subs that its a bad thing , it's better than coming off too soon and relapsing. I do wish you the best.. I know it's been months since you posted this but I felt that I had to respond either way . I do hope you see it and I wish you all the best.View Thread
