Can Breastfeeding Mothers Take Antibiotics For Sore Throats?
Hello … I am a nursing mother with my baby now 19 months old. I was suffering from a sore throat from yesterday. Then I bought FG troches, then I sucked, 2 days are gone FG troches. The question. Can FG Troches actually not be consumed by nursing mothers? If not, what if it’s already done? Is it stopped right away? Given the content of FG troches it’s antibiotics. Please answer 🙏
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Before continuing, it is indeed important to understand the label of each drug that we buy. Drugs are generally divided into 3 labels, green, blue and red labels. Green and blue labels indicate drugs that can be purchased freely without the need for prescription and doctor's advice. The difference is that blue is sold on a limited basis so you should also be more careful about using it than green labels, which are generally safer for repeated consumption. While the red label is a hard drug which in its use must be under surveillance and requires a doctor's prescription.
In your case, the drug is labeled red, and you really shouldn't buy it. On one hand, the pharmacist should not give if you don't bring a doctor's prescription. In addition, antibiotics have a detrimental effect on the body if it turns out that your disease does not require antibiotic treatment. Using it sooner or longer than it should be can have a bad impact, so it's important to do a doctor's examination.
Regarding the drug itself, FG troches fall into the D category when consumed by pregnant women, from the order of categories A, B, C, D, and X where A is the safest, and X is the most dangerous. So it can be categorized quite dangerous and should be avoided by pregnant women. As for nursing mothers, so far it is not known whether the content is absorbed by breast milk or not. So to be safe it is not consumed unless it is stated necessary by the doctor.
So for now, stop the treatment first. For sore throats, try to handle by consuming warm water mixed with honey, ginger and lemon, consumption of lozenges, limiting speech, resting, avoiding spicy, sour, greasy and fatty foods, bathing or soaking in warm water, and avoiding smoke cigarettes and pollution. If the condition does not improve, consult a doctor by presenting your condition now. So, hopefully answering your question.
