Safety Of Consumption Of Uric Acid And Hypertension Drugs In Breastfeeding Mothers?
Night, I was breastfeeding my child who was 3 months old, I was stricken with gout and high blood pressure and the doctor gave me the drugs amlodipine, meloxicam, methylprednisolone, and diclofenac potassium, the problem was I forgot to tell the doctor if I was breastfeeding I went home and I immediately drank it, then realized when my husband asked if it was safe for breastfeeding mothers, how are there serious side effects for my baby? Then how much of the drug is eliminated by the body? because look at the internet the drug must be avoided by busui so I think the drug was absorbed into breast milk and taken by my baby .. Please be very clear, ny! thank you
We understand your concern. Nursing mothers need to pay attention to the medicines they consume because the drugs can enter breast milk and some of them can have an effect on the baby. Therefore, when a breastfeeding mother checks to a doctor, a nursing mother must tell the doctor that she is breastfeeding so that the doctor can choose a safer drug for nursing mothers.
Amlodipine is a calcium antagonist class drug that functions to control hypertension and helps treat angina pectoris attacks. There is still little research on the effects of amlodipine on breastfed babies. However this drug is reported to pass into breast milk. The use of this drug in nursing mothers must be considered by the treating doctor. Hypertension still has to be controlled with hypertension medication, the doctor will choose the safest hypertension drug for nursing mothers.
Meloxicam is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that works to reduce pain and relieve swelling. So far there has not been much research into whether this drug passes into breast milk and how it affects babies. Because of this lack of clarity, meloxicam is generally not recommended for breastfeeding mothers.
Methylprednisolone is a corticosteroid that is useful for treating inflammation (be it swelling, pain, or a rash) as well as in cases of arthritis. This drug is also used to suppress the immune system, for example in cases of autoimmune diseases. From the results of the research this drug passes into breast milk so that its use in nursing mothers needs to be considered. In general, there are no reports of disturbances or negative effects on breastfed infants whose mothers take methylprednisolone in short and minimal doses. However, methylprednisolone in high doses was reported to reduce milk production.
Potassium diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that is useful for pain relief and anti-inflammatory. From the research results, this drug passes into breast milk and is not recommended for breastfeeding mothers.
Try not to worry and worry first. Do you have ASI in stock? If you have ASIP in stock, you can first give ASIP to your baby for the next 1-2 days from taking the drug. For 1-2 days, breastmilk is still pumped but not given to babies to keep milk production stable. I suggest that you go back to the doctor who examined and tell the doctor that you are breastfeeding so that the doctor can give you safer medicines for nursing mothers to deal with your complaints. You can also consult with the doctor or if necessary with a pediatrician if you do not have ASIP in stock and you are already taking these drugs.
Hope this helps,
