FAQs
Will my baby have withdrawal symptoms when born?
Methadone maintenance is the best way to provide stabilization, although infants born to methadone maintained mothers may undergo a withdrawal syndrome after birth. Infants born to women maintained on methadone during pregnancy are of higher birth weight than those born to mothers who abuse heroin during pregnancy.  Infant withdrawal "combines the symptoms of the adult withdrawal syndrome, with irritability, poorly coordinated sucking and, in the most severe and very rare cases, seizure and death." Lowering the methadone dosage may lessen or even eliminate this withdrawal syndrome.
