Take Doxycycline And Clindamycin In Women Who Are Pregnant?
How many days should pause be if someone has taken dohixat doxycline and clindamycin for someone who has a pregnant program? Or wants to get pregnant in the near future?
Thank you for the question.
Doxycycline and clindamycin are antibiotic drugs that are useful in dealing with diseases caused by bacterial infections, such as lung, intestinal, urinary, skin, and genital infections. These drugs are classified as hard drugs, the consumption of which must be carried out by prescription and direct supervision from a doctor.
Regarding your question, it needs to be clarified, what medical indications do you end up being required by doctors to take the drug? Are there certain diseases? What are the symptoms of the disease now, is it cured?
The concentration of doxycycline will be reduced by half in the blood (half life) about 18 hours after consumption. While the time needed for clindamycin to decrease by half its concentration in the blood is around 4 hours. This means, within 2 days or more after stopping consumption, these drugs should be cleared from your body, and safe for you to do pregnancy planning without having to worry about the negative effects of these drugs.
However, the ideal time for pregnancy planning certainly does not depend only on this. If you have consumed the drug, but your illness has not yet healed, and this disease also risks your pregnancy later, then you should consult a doctor or obstetrician before deciding to plan for pregnancy. That way, the risk of adverse effects on your fetus can later be minimized.
Hope this helps ...
