It takes Xanax or vicodin at least 48 to 72 hours to leave your body and yes, if they happen to find traces of a prescription narcotic in your blood after you give birth, they may call family and children services, but that does not necessarily mean your baby will be taken from you, it just means they will investigate to make sure your child is not in any danger and that you are not an avid drug user and will keep your child in a proper environment. If you had a prescription for these medicines, they can not do anything to you, they will say they can, but if a doctor prescribed them to you, there is nothing they can do. It is however against the law to take these meds without a prescription and it is a felony to get caught in possession of even one of these pills without a prescription from a doctor in your name
I Am Not Prescribed The Vicoden I A Have Also Taken Xanes Will They Take My Son From Me At Birth ?also How Long Does It Take For The Xanex To Leave My Babys System?
You have admitted to taking these drugs without prescription, so, you need to tell your doctor everything. He needs to be aware of the situation to be able to help you. Both of the drugs may cause respiratory problems to your son and the Xanax may also cause muscular weakness. The baby may also experience withdrawl symptoms, but hopefully, you may still have time to clean up, if you get help. (I don't know if this is possible, but worth a try.) You have to trust someone to help you. My heart bleeds for you, but I'm sure you have learned a hugh lesson.
Good luck with your situation.
If they find any drugs in your baby yes they will take your baby as did they take my family members when she had her baby. They can also charge you with criminal charges.
Xanax takes 2 weeks to leave the system. Any drug found in your system or your baby's is cause for the hospital to call children & youth. They will conduct an investigation and will decide if your baby can be left with you or should be taken away.
