Side Headaches In Nursing Mothers.?
Morning … You want a consultation … I like the right headache, the pain is sampled to the brow bone, nose bone and right head ape to the back … That’s why huh? I’ve been to the doctor, he didn’t explain why it .. !! And I was given analsic drugs. I searched for analsic drugs such as sedatives containing drugs ?? And I forgot to tell the doctor that I was breastfeeding … Is it okay for nursing mothers? Or stop it ?? Thank you
Hello! Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com
Headache is generally divided into 2, namely primary and secondary headaches. Primary for no apparent reason (usually triggered by stress or physical fatigue), and secondary to a particular disease.
Primary headaches for example are:
Migraine: one-sided headache, feels like throbbing
Tension: headache that feels like it's bound
Cluster: headache behind one eye, accompanied by discharge from the eyes and nose
As for secondary headaches for example:
Increased eyeball pressure
The drug that you mentioned has a benzodiazepine content that has a sedative effect. This drug can have an effect on the fetus in the form of weakness in infants and weight loss, especially if taken for a long time. So it's good indeed as much as possible to avoid first consuming this class of drugs while still breastfeeding. In the mother, if consumed long term can also cause dependence.
If the headache does not go away, or it gets worse, it is best to return to the doctor who examined you the other day to be evaluated and tracked further because of your complaints. Also say that you are breastfeeding so your doctor can choose other alternative medicines for you to consume that are safe for your baby
As for what you should do:
Inadequate consumption of your nutrients as needed
Consumption of 2 liters of water per day
Limit strenuous physical activity
If the pain is severe, you can take over-the-counter medicines such as paracetamol to help relieve symptoms.
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
