Provision Of Blood-thinning Drugs When Pregnant Young?
I want to ask my wife to be pregnant and given a mini-drug 80, actually what medicine is it instead of heart medicine.
Hello Sis Wantoro,
Thank you for the question.
The drug you mentioned is a blood-thinning drug that works by inhibiting platelet aggregation / clumping through the regulation / regulation of certain hormones such as TXA2 and prostacyclin, where platelets or blood clots function in the process of blood clotting. In general, this drug is used to treat heart diseases to prevent blockages in blood vessels. However, in some cases, this drug can be used in pregnancy with certain indications.
In pregnant women, this drug helps prevent preeclampsia, which is high blood pressure during pregnancy. In some studies, preeclampsia can occur due to an imbalance of the hormones TXA2 and prostacyclin, which the drug you mentioned can help balance these hormones. In addition, this drug can also help reduce the occurrence of complications in pregnant women who have risk factors such as having experienced preeclampsia before, a history of twin pregnancy, a history of high blood pressure before pregnancy, a history of diabetes mellitus, a history of kidney disease, and a history of immune system diseases like lupus.
There are several contraindications or restrictions on pregnant women who should not use this drug during pregnancy, namely a history of allergies to these drugs or salicylate-derived drugs, allergies to NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), history of diseases such as nasal polyps, asthma, bleeding in the digestive tract, liver disorders, and the presence of other illnesses. So, it's a good idea for you and your wife to consult with an obstetrician who prescribes you this drug, regarding the indications, contraindications, and side effects of using this drug during pregnancy.
Hopefully this information can be useful.
