Safety Of The Drug Nasacort AQ (triamcinolone Acetonide) For Pregnant Women?
I am 24 weeks pregnant, can I take this medicine and spray?
Thank you for your question.
Triamcinolone acetonide is a spray that is used to treat inflammation of the nasal cavity due to allergies. This drug has side effects, such as: runny nose, sore throat, inflammation of the nasal cavity, nosebleeds. Triamcinolone alone cannot be given to people who have allergies to this drug, people who are infected with bacterial, viral, fungal and parasitic infections.
Other drugs that you consume contain erdostein in which they function as thinning phlegm in the respiratory tract. The drug has side effects such as: chest and stomach heat, nausea, and diarrhea.
The two drugs that you take are indeed included in category C which means it MAY RISK THE FETAL. Which is a sign, this drug has no positive evidence to cause defects in the fetus. And if you get the medicine from a doctor, then you don't need to worry, because the doctor will definitely consider a greater benefit for you than the side effects. Because, if the drug is not given, it actually makes your baby worse.
Focus yourself on maintaining your body's endurance, and eating foods that are nutritious for your and your child's nutrition.
