Can Breastfeeding Mothers Take Trihexyphenidyl Drugs?
, I am a nursing mother, my child is 16 months old, may I take the drug Trihexypenydyl?
Hello Alfi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Trihexyphenidyl drugs are drugs that belong to the class of anti-parkinsonism drugs that are generally used to reduce symptoms resembling Parkinson's disease and also to overcome the symptoms of side effects of certain drugs.
This drug based on research is highly recommended to be used cautiously in women who are breastfeeding because based on research the use of this drug in high doses and long periods of time can cause disruption in the production of breast milk.
If you are recommended to use this medicine by a doctor, say that you are still breastfeeding your child. In the meantime, keep consuming the drug according to doctor's instructions until there are further instructions.
I hope this helps.
