Is It Safe For Pregnant Women To Consume Cold Medicine And Cough?
Good afternoon, I want to ask, I have been fluing for almost a week and the cough has not stopped. I decided to go to a specialist and I said I was pregnant for 2 months and the doctor gave me TRIXIM CEFIXIME 200 MG + OMEPRAZOLE 20 MG + FUCOIDAN 100 and it turned out to be acidic my stomach is high): the question is what can I consume?
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The drug you mentioned has a successive effect as an antibiotic to treat bacterial infections, stomach acid-lowering and supplements to protect the stomach. Cefixime is safe for pregnant women, and does have side effects such as digestive disorders. Omeprazole is less safe than cefixime, but can be given if the doctor has considered more benefits than disadvantages. This drug can also cause side effects in the form of abdominal pain while Fucoidan does not have research that determines the danger of being consumed by pregnant and lactating women.
So in your case, it is possible that the symptoms of stomach acid that you feel come from the drugs you consume, but do not stop using it independently without doctor's advice first, especially for antibiotics. This is important because using antibiotics that are not as recommended has the potential to make bacteria resistant to these antiobitics. When bacteria are resistant, disease can be far more difficult to cure.
Therefore, we suggest that, while continuing to take medication as prescribed, return to your doctor to re-evaluate your condition. Your doctor may replace, reduce or add to the medication given to you after this evaluation. Meanwhile, multiply the consumption of warm water, avoid spicy, sour and oily foods, and do not delay eating. So, hopefully answering your question.
