If I am pregnant, is it safe to use Rybix ODT?

If you're pregnant, you should take Rybix ODT (tramadol) only if your doctor thinks the benefits outweigh potential risks to the fetus. Rybix ODT is a pain reliever that belongs to a class of drugs called opioid analgesics. The safety of this medication hasn't been tested in pregnant women. However, babies born to women who use opioid analgesics may be physically dependent on these drugs and develop withdrawal symptoms such as excessive crying, diarrhea, skin problems and others. If you're pregnant, tell your doctor before taking Rybix ODT.
