Dangers Of Taking Antalgin And Diclofenac Sodium For Pregnant Women?
Good afternoon, I want to ask? now I am 14 weeks pregnant, before I knew that I was pregnant I could take antalgin and diclofenac sodium, maybe I consumed it when I lived 9 weeks. What danger is there to my fetus?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The product you mentioned is an anti-pain and anti-inflammatory which is actually a hard drug that can only be obtained through a doctor's prescription. One reason is because this drug is not completely safe for everyone, especially pregnant women.
Each drug usually undergoes various examinations to be judged whether or not it is safe for use in pregnant women, then the results will be classified from A, B, C, D, N and X. Category A is the safest category and X is the least safe category. Various effects that can be caused by drugs that are not safe for pregnant women are miscarriage, heavy bleeding, premature birth, or birth defects.
The drug you mentioned is a drug that is in categories C and D, so it is quite unsafe, and should only be used if it has been considered that its usefulness is greater than the potential danger.
As for your current condition where the drug has been taken, there is no prevention you can do. There is no medicine you can take that can 'counteract' the effects of the drug. But you can still optimize your pregnancy, which is by regularly checking your pregnancy to the obstetrician, telling all your experiences and symptoms to the obstetrician, avoiding coffee consumption, cigarette smoke, dust and pollution, not taking drugs other than those prescribed by the doctor (with a doctor's note you know that you are pregnant), take regular breaks, increase your consumption of water and avoid stress. So, hopefully answering your question.
