Failed drug test during pregnancy.

Patient: I tested positive for cocaine and marijuana on the 7th during pregnancy is the anyway to safety clean out my system so it wont show up in the baby’s meconium

 

 

Symptoms: None

 

 

Doctor: Hello,If you are already pregnant then the only way it can be metabolised is at its own pace, once it clears of from your system then it would do so from the baby’s as well. Just keep yourself well hydrated. Opioid antagonists like methadone are contraindicated in early pregnancy.I hope i have answered your query,regards
