Can Nursing Mothers Take Antacids?
Can breastfeeding mothers take Bufantacid medicine?
Hello AvnieOctavia, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Bufantacid is an OABT brand that contains aluminum hydroxide, magnesium hydroxia and also simethicone. The three main compositions of this drug are the main compositions of antacid class drugs which aim to change the atmosphere of excessive stomach acid to be more alkaline thereby reducing complaints caused by excess stomach acid.
This drug because it is included in the class of antacid drugs, it is permissible and recommended for use when needed in nursing mothers because this drug does not affect the production of breast milk and if consumed according to the dose will not be issued in excessive amounts of breast milk. So it can be concluded that this drug is safe for breastfeeding mothers as long as its use is in accordance with the doctor's recommendations.
I hope this helps.
