Safety Of Antibiotic Consumption For Nursing Mothers?
Tonight the doctor wanted to ask whether the drug dexycol is safe for nursing mothers
Hello, thank you for your question to HealthReplies.com
Dexycol is a drug that contains Thiamphenicol. Just like other antibiotics, thiamphenicol is included in the class of hard drugs or drugs with a red circle label. Drugs that are classified as hard drugs should not be used if you have not yet consulted a doctor directly and should also not be purchased without a prescription from a doctor. The safety of using thiamphenicol in nursing mothers is not known with certainty, therefore it is not recommended to be given to nursing mothers except for very strong indications (for example there are certain bacterial infections that cannot be overcome with other safer antibiotics)
If you have not consulted directly to the doctor, you should avoid taking this drug. If indeed your doctor has prescribed this medicine for you and indeed your doctor already knows that you are breastfeeding, then you can take the medicine according to the instructions given by your doctor.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
