Can Pregnant Women Take Dextral Tablets?
Hello, I went to the midwife for treatment because I coughed a cold, it hasn’t recovered for a week, and the midwife was given dextral tablets and Yusimox tablets, it’s safe to drink it with pregnant women
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Dextran is a drug that contains Dextrometorphan, Glyceryl guaiacolate (GG), Phenylpropanolamine, and Chlorpheniramine maleate. Dextrometorphan and chlorpheniramine in this drug are quite safe for consumption by pregnant women, but GG and phenylpropanolamine must be used with caution in pregnant women. Both of these ingredients should not be given to pregnant women unless there are strong indications to give them. Yusimox itself is a drug that contains Amoxicillin. This drug is an antibiotic and all antibiotics are classified as hard drugs. Only doctors may prescribe hard drugs for patients and midwives may not prescribe antibiotics for patients.
If it's been a week you have a cold cough and there are no signs of improvement, you should do a doctor's examination. You may bring the medicine given by your midwife, but you should not take it before you consult your doctor first.
Some things you can do to help reduce the symptoms of your cold cough:
Drink more fluids
Get enough sleep and rest
Drinking water / ginger tea mixed with honey can help relieve coughing and sore throat
Use an air humidifier / humidifier in your bedroom or workspace if you work a lot in an air-conditioned room
Avoid exposure to cigarette smoke and excessive air pollution
Take a bath with warm water and breathe warm steam from your bath water
Rinse the nose with saline if there is nasal congestion
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
