Safe Toothache Medicine For Nursing Mothers?
. want to ask whether clindamcyin and mefinal toothache medications are safe for nursing mothers?
Thank you for the question.
Toothache there are many possible causes, ranging from sensitive teeth, cavities, dental abscesses, gingivitis, tooth impaction, jaw joint disorders, sinusitis, migraine, trigeminal neuralgia, psychological disorders, and so on. Different causes of pain, of course there can be different treatments that need to be given to overcome them.
Clindamycin is an antibiotic drug whose use is to overcome bacterial infections. While mefenamic acid (contained in mefinal) is a NSAID-class drug that is useful in minimizing symptoms of pain and inflammation, including those that occur related to disorders of the teeth and mouth. Consumption of the two drugs above when breastfeeding is not recommended to be done, especially without a prescription and medical supervision. Because, although one of these drugs is safe to consume while breastfeeding, but these two drugs are not included in the class of over-the-counter drugs. And, only toothache that occurs is related to an appropriate infection given antibiotics such as clindamycin. So, don't be careless ..
If you experience toothache while breastfeeding, you should first relieve the pain by taking paracetamol. You can also rinse your mouth with a saline solution and warm compresses on the outside of your diseased tooth. Don't forget, get plenty of rest, don't eat hard and sticky food first, and be more disciplined in keeping your teeth and mouth clean.
However, if with the steps above the pain continues, so before taking other medicines, check yourself first to the nearest dentist huh ..
I hope this helps.
