(KUTV) Nurse Al Romeo talks about allergy drugs for pregnant and pregnant women.
- Baby Allergy Medication drugs, such as Claritin (loratadine), Zyrtec (cetirizine), Allegra (fexofenadine), and Benadryl (diphenhydramine), don’t lead to an increased risk for difficulties in pregnancy.
- Nasal sprays, such as Flonase (fluticasone) and Nasonex (mometasone), provide the medicine directly to the nose and also do not get in the blood just as much. They have fewer side effects and can be utilised in pregnancy, which means if mother has concerns, they’re a fantastic alternative.
- Sudafed (phenylephrine or pseudoephedrine) may be utilized as long as mother does not have elevated blood pressure.
Can taking Baby Allergy Medication while breastfeeding enter your milk and damage your kid?
- Allergy drugs may get in the milk in tiny amounts, usually less than one %, but generally insufficient to cause unwanted side effects in the baby.
- Allergy drugs may lower the milk supply temporarily while the medicine is on your own body but the milk amount will go back to regular, if it did return, following the medication is from the body in a couple of hours.
- Allergies, diseases, lack of sleep, and other anxieties may also lower the milk supply briefly, therefore we would like to be sure mother is taking good care of your own health.
