Treatment Of Stomach Acid In Pregnant Women?
Can a nursing mother with a stomach acid take 20 capsules of ometac? If possible, how can you use it?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. It is true that in pregnant and breastfeeding women, there are some drugs that should not be taken because they can enter the placenta or into breast milk and affect the fetus or baby. This applies even to drugs that have previously been routinely consumed, or to drugs that are sold freely. So that your decision to ask is right.
The drug that you mentioned has a generic omeprazole and is a drug used for people with stomach acid to reduce symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. For nursing mothers, this drug is quite safe. Indeed there is a small portion of the drug that can enter breast milk and be taken by the baby, but its content is so small that it does not affect your baby. But if your baby is born prematurely or has certain medical problems, it would be better if you consult your pediatrician first.
Meanwhile, besides taking drugs, no less important is to prevent the disease becoming more severe and often recur, and it can be prevented by eating regularly even a little, not delaying eating, avoiding coffee consumption, spicy, sour, oily and fatty foods, and maintaining ideal weight. So, hopefully answering your question.
