A Safe Drug For Breastfeeding Mothers To Consume When Exposed To Chikungunya?
Greetings, … I’m always healthy … My wife has been diagnosed with chikungunya symptoms because she has a fever and her body hurts, but she hasn’t checked her blood yet, she said later on day 4. Then she was given the following medication: Codein tab 10mgOpineuron tabStamino capSumagesic tab 500mgThe wife’s condition I am currently breastfeeding. Are the above drugs safe for breastfeeding? Thank you in advance.
Hello Fahmi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Codeine is one of the drugs included in the opiod class that can be used as a cough reliever. This drug is not recommended for use during breastfeeding because the metabolic results of this drug can be removed through breast milk and can cause side effects on the baby as the baby becomes prone to excessive sleep, difficulty in breastfeeding or interference with breathing.
Opineuron is a brand of medicine that contains methampirone and diazepam where this drug can help relieve pain. Because this drug contains diazepam, its use during breastfeeding is also less recommended because it can cause the child to become inclined to sleep so they are less willing to breastfeed.
Stamino is a brand of drug that contains multivitamins and minerals in which its use is quite safe during breastfeeding, as well as Sumagesic containing paracetamol where paracetamol is safe to use during breastfeeding.
Because your wife is getting drugs that contain codeine and also dazepam, you should ask the doctor who is treating your wife right now about their use and tell your wife's doctor that your wife is breastfeeding. In the meantime, the administration of these drugs is definitely based on the doctor's consideration based on the benefits and condition of your wife, continue to consume according to the dosage until there is further advice from the treating doctor.
I hope this helps.
