Can Nursing Mothers Take Diclofenac Medication To Relieve Toothache?
Hello good night, I have a toothache due to holes, I was taking neuralgin medicine to relieve pain, but I am breastfeeding, is that okay? Please answer yes, Thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The medicine you mentioned is a pain reliever which also has the benefit of nourishing the nerve with the vitamin content that is in it. However, these drugs are labeled red and thus are hard drugs, so they should not be used carelessly.
One reason the drug is strong medicine is related to your question. The main content of this drug is diclofenac, which for pregnant women falls into category C in the category of drug safety that starts from A as the safest, then B, C, D and X for the most insecure. For nursing mothers, this drug can be included in breast milk and taken by your child. Therefore, the use of this drug must be strictly under the supervision of a doctor.
So in your current case, stop using the drug, and check with your dentist for treatment that is more targeted at the root of the problem. If the reason for the pain is because of cavities, then the choice can be patched, used dental brackets, root canal treatment, or revoked if it can not be helped. Thus, you do not need to endanger your child with consumption of hard drugs. For drugs that have already been taken, nothing can be done to remove them, so there is no follow up.
Meanwhile, to help reduce pain, gargle using warm salt water, cold compress the area of pain, apply clove oil, and maintain oral hygiene regularly. So, hopefully answering your question.
