The U.S. Food and Drug Administration agreed to list a “black box warning” on opiod drugs to ensure that pregnant mothers know the risk of taking narcotics during pregnancy. Montana Attorney General Tim Fox and 42 other attorneys general requested the FDA make the change to protect pregnant mothers and unborn babies. Mothers who take opiods during pregnancy often cause their babies to acquire Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, a condition that can cause seizures, slow weight gain and other symptoms. Do you think requiring a warning label on opiod medications will decrease their harmful effects on newborns?
