Taking Spiramycin Drugs In Pregnant Women 5 Months?
hello I want to ask, I want to be pregnant for 5 months but I got the toxoplasma so the doctor was given spiramicyn he said, wait 3 months and then the medicine will be tested again. This medicine is about to run out, just consume it 2 months while the doctor has a schedule later Wednesday. Can I stop until I see the doctor or have to consume it until the time the doctor determines and buy it outside? afraid because running out of drugs continues to stop being told to repeat from the beginning again taking the medicine. Hopefully answered thank you
Thank you for the question.
Toxoplasmosis is an infection caused by the parasite Toxoplasma gondii. This infection is prone to trigger pregnancy miscarriages, fetal defects, and even fetal death in the womb. Therefore, your condition should be handled optimally to prevent these things.
Toxoplasmosis treatment can be done primarily by administering drugs to eradicate the parasites that cause it. One drug of choice for this is spiramycin. This drug is a type of antibiotic that must be taken according to doctor's advice, it should not be stopped, extended, or added carelessly.
Regarding your condition, if indeed your medicine is currently out, while your doctor or obstetrician who is used to treating you is not currently practicing, you should still go for a check up immediately before the drug is used up. It is not a necessity for you to see the same doctor at each visit. Even different doctors, if you know well your health status, usually from a medical record at the health facility where you have your checkup, of course, can still give you the right treatment according to your illness. That way, the risk of treatment failure can be minimized.
Hope this helps ...
