At his six-month “well” visit, he was diagnosed with his second ear infection.He received vaccinations for seven different diseases despite being ill, and we left with a prescription for Amoxicillin.And not just a regular C-section: it was such an emergency that I had to be anesthetized via general anesthesia, even though I had an epidural in place. He then received five courses of antibiotics before he was a year old for chronic ear infections.While this is bad cumulatively, the one event that stands out for me, and literally makes me feel sick, was a single dose of Augmentin when he was six months old.
I couldn’t find any specific links between Lortab and Autism, but common sense dictates that this was not good.
It is painful normally, but it was practically unbearable while I was pregnant.
My OB prescribed Lortab telling me that it didn’t cross the placenta and was perfectly safe.
However, I’m pretty sure that I will never forgive myself, for my transgressions are embodied in a beautiful seven-year-old who tells me daily that I am “the best Mom in the universe.” I know the truth. All of these “unforgivable” actions were done with the best of intentions, but we all know what they say about “good intentions” and “the road to hell.” I am admitting here for all the world to see: I gave my son Autism. 2) High-fructose corn syrup – I drank Coca Cola every single day while I was pregnant.
I was so incredibly nauseous and it made my stomach feel better.
