Antibiotics Are Taken With Folamil Genio?
Please enlighten. I am 5 months pregnant (18weeks). 6 days ago I coughed with a little phlegm, and if I cough my stomach feels like ‘pulling’. Last July 5, I decided to go to the nearest midwife, and it happened that the midwife was not the place where I used to do pregnancy checks. I decided to go to the midwife because coincidentally my husband was not there so I went to the midwife who was the closest distance to my house. Then after consulting I was given drugs Samoxin Amoxicilin, Melapect Ambroxol HCL, and Alleron Ctm. I am a little doubtful of the medicine given. In the end I decided to take Amoxicillin and Ambroxol only. R n r nMy questions are 2; r n1. Is the drug safe to drink for pregnant women? If it’s not safe, I’ve already taken one for Ambroxol and Amoxicillin. How do doctors advise? R n2. Are antibiotics safe to consume when I’m also taking Folamil Genio as a pregnant woman’s vitamin intake? R n r nI thank you very much for the enlightenment from the doctor. R n r nGreetings.
Hello Indri, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Amoxicillin is a beta-lactam type antibiotic prescribed to treat bacterial infections that are sensitive to this drug. Amoxicillin is a category B drug, which is a drug that has not been shown to cause certain side effects in animal experiments, but there have not been adequate studies in humans. Medicines of this category are quite safe to use during pregnancy.
Ambroxol is a drug that is given to help thin and remove phlegm in the airways. This drug has not been subjected to specific clinical research in women who are pregnant, so its use is only recommended if the benefits outweigh the possibility of side effects. Existing clinical research shows that this drug is safe to use at 28 weeks of pregnancy and above. Its use is not recommended especially in the first trimester of pregnancy.
CTM is a drug from the antihistamine class. This drug is a category B drug, so it is quite safe to use during pregnancy. The drugs mentioned above are also safe to take together with pregnancy vitamins such as Folamil Genio.
Make sure you take these drugs according to the instructions given. Take your antibiotics even if your symptoms improve.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
