Cold Medicine For Pregnant Women?
Mlm … You ask, I’m 3 months pregnant and now I have a cold. Can I take this silex flu medicine? Are the side effects the same as the fetus? Then what flu medicine is good for pregnant women?
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
The medicine you mentioned contains an active ingredient in the form of guafenesin with a combination of other substances. In general, guafenesin is included in category C for use in pregnant women, which means that it can only be used if it is really needed and with consideration that it is more beneficial than the risk that can be caused.
In general, if the flu that occurs is influenza, then it generally does not require special treatment and is included in the category of self-limiting disease or can heal on its own and drugs are only intended to relieve symptoms and not treat.
But on the other hand, examination and evaluation are needed to ensure that there are other causes that require certain treatments such as rhinitis, allergies, sinusitis, pharyngitis, etc. So, it is advisable for you to check with the nearest general practitioner so you can get the right and safe treatment for you and your fetus
For a while:
Avoid the air is too hot and too cold
Avoid dust, cigarette smoke, pollution
Drink plenty of water
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
