Can You Use The Anti-sodium Drug Diclofenac On The Waist Of A 6 Month Pregnant Woman?
Good night. I am pregnant around 6 months. After doing homework, like pregnant women in general, I always feel pain in the lumbar / tailbone. Can I use hotin dcl gel to relieve pain in my waist when it hurts? Previously without knowing whether or not, I had tried to use the gel when the waist to the tail hurt after a long journey and the pain felt less in just a few minutes. Thank you.
Good evening Ce_haer, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The gel you are asking for contains sodium diclofenac, which is a medicine that is a pain reliever and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.
This drug although in the form of a gel that is only applied to the outer skin only, based on available data, is not recommended for use in pregnant women because it belongs to the category C for drugs in pregnancy where this drug in experimental animals has side effects on the fetus contained , but there is not enough data about its use in humans.
Because it falls into this category, its use must be at the discretion of the doctor and not recommended for use on its own decision.
If your complaint is indeed very disturbing, you can try taking paracetamol according to the recommended dosage accompanied by rest and temporarily limit heavy activity. However, if complaints continue to be felt and do not experience improvement with paracetamol drugs, then you should consult a doctor to get more appropriate therapy according to your condition when the examination is done.
I hope this helps.
