Fever Remedy For Breastfeeding Mothers?
Hello, I want to ask my wife to continue breastfeeding, and my child is only 1 month old, if I can breastfeed my mother to take Panadol medicine because of my illness, please explain, thank you …
Hello Muhamad Ridwan, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Research on the effect of the drug paracetamol on breastfeeding mothers on the child until now is still very limited, but until now also, existing studies and studies state that the use of the drug paracetamol (in accordance with the recommended dosage) will be issued in breast milk in quantities small where the amount is based on existing studies will not cause harm to the child who consumes breast milk that contains small amounts of the drug paracetamol.
Even so, it is better if your wife experiences complaints of heat and cold, you should bring your wife to be examined further by a doctor to find what are the main causes of the complaint and what is the best therapy for the condition.
For the time being, if you want to use the drug Paracetamol, you should use it according to the dosage shown on the medicine package / doctor's recommendation. Your wife is also advised to continue breastfeeding your child even though he is taking the drug Paracetamol because it is not harmful to your child.
I hope this helps.
