Can You Take The Antibiotic Drug Fradiomycin And Gramicidin When Tonsillitis Recur In 6 Months Pregnant Women?
good afternoon. I’m 6 months pregnant and then my tonsils are relapsing then I take meiji medicine is it okay? because it hurts so much so I just consume meiji
Thank you for the question.
Pain around the throat is actually not always caused by tonsillitis (tonsillitis). It could also, this pain arises due to pharyngitis (strep throat), irritation (for example due to prickly food spikes or excessive consumption of spicy food), dry throat, acid reflux, and many other possible causes. Tonsillitis itself may have many causes, it could be due to viruses, it could also be bacteria. Therefore, handling these conditions should not be done haphazardly, especially in your current condition who is pregnant.
The drug you mentioned contains the active composition of 2 types of antibiotics, namely Fradiomycin and Gramicidin. Consumption of this drug is strongly not recommended during pregnancy (category D) because it is known to cause adverse effects on the fetus in studies conducted on animals, although there is no clinical evidence that proves its effects when consumed by humans. While it's true that your condition is caused by tonsillitis, not all of these conditions need to be treated with antibiotics (for example if the cause is a viral infection). Not only that, all types are included in the class of hard drugs, the consumption of which must be done on a doctor's prescription.
Our advice, stop your habit of taking antibiotics carelessly. So that the pain in your throat subsides, it's safer for you to do it first:
Drink warm water and warm food more
Don't eat spicy, oily, take away and artificial sweet foods
Not talking too much, let alone screaming
Don't get used to breathing through the mouth
Use air humidifier, don't use air conditioner or excessive fan
Eat more regularly, don't eat too late
Not too much sadness, anxiety, or excessive fear
Do not smoke
If indeed the pain is very annoying, you can first reduce the pain by taking paracetamol (do not take other drugs carelessly without a doctor's prescription)
However, if the complaint does not go away for up to 3 days, or if there is fever, vomiting, difficulty breathing, sleep disturbance, swallowing disorders, etc. right yes ..
I hope this helps.
