Tonotan Medicine Isoxsuprine Hcl?
Good evening, sorry I want to ask. Two days ago I had severe contractions like I was about to give birth but my pregnancy is still 24w3d and my fetus weighs only 611 grams. These contractions are classified as intense every 2-5 minutes along with vaginal pain and lower abdominal pain. I went straight to the hospital, thank God there was no opening. The doctor gave me Tonotan Isoxsuprime hci and Sangovitin. I want to ask whether I have to finish the drug or what? Please explain, thank you.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
It is normal for pregnant women to experience contractions when their pregnancy is past 20 weeks. However, very severe contractions that occur before 34 weeks of gestation are at risk of causing preterm labor. And at a young gestational age, the possibility of the fetus being able to survive outside the womb is very small. Therefore, the steps you took before were right, namely to get checked out IMMEDIATELY with an obstetrician to be given the best treatment.
To treat premature contractions, doctors can give several types of drugs, including tocolytic groups, such as Isoxsuprime HCl. This drug acts as a beta adrenoreceptor agonist with selectivity in the blood vessels supplying smooth muscles, especially in the vessels of the brain and limbs. When given in higher doses, this drug is useful for relaxing the smooth muscle in the uterus so that the risk of miscarriage and preterm labor can be minimized.
Meanwhile, another drug that the doctor gives, namely sangovitin, is a supplement that can be given to pregnant women. This supplement contains a variety of nutrients, such as Fe gluconate, manganese sulfate, copper sulfate, vitamin C, folic acid, vitamin B112, and sorbitol. The provision of this supplement can help prevent and treat anemia during pregnancy as well as meet the nutritional needs of the mother and fetus during pregnancy.
Because it is a supplement, you can take sangovitin regularly 1 to 2 capsules a day as recommended by your doctor until it runs out. However, specifically for Isoxsuprime HCl, this drug is not included in the free drug class, so its use MUST be based on a doctor's prescription, it is not sufficiently explained in an free forum like this. Therefore, we urge you to consult directly with the obstetrician who prescribes the drug.
I hope this helps.
