If I am pregnant, is it safe to use ConZip?

If you're pregnant, your doctor is unlikely to prescribe the pain medication ConZip (tramadol) for you. ConZip hasn't been studied in pregnant women, but it is known that tramadol crosses the placenta and that babies born to mothers who took similar drugs while pregnant have experienced complications, including seizures and withdrawal symptoms; there have also been instances of fetal death and stillbirth when drugs similar to ConZip were taken by a pregnant woman. If you're pregnant, you should take ConZip only if the benefits to you far outweigh the potential risks to your developing fetus.
