Assalamualaikum. I suffered from hemorrhoids and then I was given kaltrofen supp medicine, while I was breastfeeding my baby. It didn’t affect my baby.
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The drug you mentioned contains ketoprofen, a drug that is included in the NSAID class or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. This drug mainly functions to reduce symptoms of inflammation, one of which is pain. This medication is a prescription drug, which means you shouldn't buy it without your doctor's advice.
Regarding your question about whether it affects the baby, it is still not known whether this drug is absorbed into breast milk or not. So to be on the safe side we recommend that you do not use this medication if you do not feel pain, and tell your doctor at your next appointment that you are breastfeeding. The use of this drug should also be avoided for pregnant women.
Then immediately visit your doctor if your complaint does not improve, or you experience other symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, stomach pain, diarrhea, headache, mouth sores, difficulty sleeping and so on. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
