Our expert says:
Safe use in pregnancy has not been established relative to possible adverse effects on foetal development. Instances of withdrawal symptoms in the neonate have been reported following usage during pregnancy. Therefore, dextropropoxyphene should not be used in pregnant women unless, in the judgement of the physician, the potential benefits outweigh the possible hazards.
