Flu Medicine That Can Be Taken By Pregnant Women 8 Months?
Hello, I am currently pregnant at 8 months of pregnancy … I also have a history of hypertension, and eclampsia in the previous pregnancy … what I want to ask, is there a cold medicine that I can take, because now I am dizzy accompanied by sneezing, sneezing … after a few days i also cough ..
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm beforehand, whether in your current pregnancy there is also high blood pressure?
Basically, most of the cold and cough medicines are indeed safe for pregnant women to consume. However, of course, not all the ingredients of cold and cough medicines that are sold freely are allowed and safe for consumption by pregnant women, especially pregnant women who have high blood pressure. Therefore, all pregnant women who are experiencing the flu and cough, especially if there is indeed high blood pressure as well, should always consult directly with a gynecologist before taking certain medicines (although these drugs are classified as over-the-counter drugs or limited over-the-counter drugs).
The following are some things that can help relieve your cold and cough symptoms:
Expand sleep and rest Drink plenty of fluids, especially warm liquids, you may add honey and ginger in your drink. Both of these ingredients are known to have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects that can help reduce the symptoms of flu and cough. Eat foods that are soft and soupy when there is difficulty / pain in swallowing. Take warm water and inhale steam from your bath water. and your workspace (especially when using air conditioning) Perform a nasal rinse with saline fluid. If after 5 days the flu symptoms and your cough do not decrease or appear to get worse, you should not see a doctor's examination.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
