, I am 7 months pregnant. nI currently have chicken pox. n nGiven a 400 mg tablet of Acyclovir, 500 mg of Paracetamol, and Acyclovir ointment from the doctor .. I took the drug Acyclovir u0026amp; paracetamol together, is it safe for the fetus? I am afraid of overdosing if I take medicine together like that.

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question.

In general, during pregnancy it is not recommended to take drugs without a doctor's recommendation. This is because the number of drugs that can cause problems during pregnancy, especially affecting the growth conditions of the fetus itself. However, there are several types of drugs that are allowed or a therapeutic option when a person is pregnant.

The drugs that you mentioned are basically safe for pregnant women. However, that does not mean that there are no side effects that can occur, they can occur but the side effects may be minor or have not been detected, especially if they are not consumed according to the rules of your doctor.

The actual interaction between Acyclovir and Paracetamol is not known with certainty, and as long as its use is relatively safe, as long as it is used as directed by your doctor. At this time, if you really feel worried, see the doctor who gave you this medicine again, so that it can be reviewed and you can explain your condition and its relationship to the medicine given.

My advice at this time is to increase the number of healthy and balanced foods, such as fruits and vegetables, as well as meat and milk that are good for the health of the mother and fetus. Also consult about the types of food you can or should not eat during pregnancy. Get plenty of rest to help recover from the condition experienced by chicken pox, also don't forget to keep your body hydrated enough.

I hope this helps.
