Getting pregnant while on ultracet may not be a very good idea. Ultracet is a combination of acetomenophin (Tylenol) and tramadol. Ultracet is a FDA pregnancy category C. That means it is not known whether Ultracet is harmful to an unborn baby. Tramadol alone may have caused serious or fatal side effects in newborns of mothers who used the medication during pregnancy or labor.

Have you spoken with your doctor about the fact that you plan to become pregnant during treatment with Ultracet?

Second, prolactin values above 100ng/ml warrant a follow-up visit with a physician to determine why your levels are so high. Very high levels can indicate a potential problem with the pituitary.
