What pain medications are suitable for children and nursing mothers?
Painkillers became life-savingaround for a modern person in many situations. Of course, if you comply with the dosage, take contraindications, do not abuse, tolerate pain, when possible. But there are situations when the reception of painkillers is strictly contraindicated. Most effective drugs are prohibited for children, adults for certain diseases. Especially harmful painkillers for pregnant women! But there is always a way out, especially when it comes to modern medicine.
Anesthetics for lactation and pregnancy
During pregnancy, such pain as dentalespecially unpleasant. Tooth can not always be treated, painkillers take - harmful for the child. Also during lactation. What if you endure the pain unbearably?
Paracetamol, children's panadol are suitable aspainkillers, and to reduce temperature. They can be taken, but in small quantities. Aspirin is taken only in extreme cases, only on the advice of a doctor, and only in small quantities.
If necessary (after cesarean section, withinflammatory processes, with severe pain) will help ibuprofen or ketoprofen - strong painkillers, but take them with caution, under the supervision of a doctor.
In no case can you take analgin, andmeans and all the drugs in which he is included: tempalgin, pentalgin, andipal, baralgin, spasmalgon and others. It causes unwanted reactions from the cardiovascular system in the mother and in many cases - allergies in toddlers.
Such serious drugs as Nise, ketorol (well helping with toothache and others) can not be drunk at all with breastfeeding, pregnancy and certainly children.
If the situation, for example, with a toothache cametoo far and painkillers do not help, you need to go to the reception and treat the tooth. Know, today for the anesthesia of young mothers, specially developed drugs are used: ubistesin, ultracaine.
Some mothers who take these or thosemedicines, in order to protect the baby, resort to decanting. Such a method is praiseworthy, if only you can accurately estimate for what period of your organism the complete drug will be taken out. And if you're not afraid that the baby suddenly stops taking the breast, since you gave him a bottle once (this does not happen if the baby has a great appetite). Since the baby does not refuse to drink expressed milk from the bottle, why not ... Again, it is better to consult a doctor (with a pediatrician who regularly visits you from a local children's polyclinic).
Painkillers for children
What can be worse when a baby yells from pain, but you can not help it? Thanks to modern medicine for safe drugs that alleviate the pain of our babies!
The same paracetamol will help, only in syrup. It is possible and in tablets, if there is no opportunity to run to the pharmacy for syrup: a quarter of the tablet, after 20 minutes another quarter - will help better than the whole tablet!
Anaferon for children (with a funny penguin onpackaging) - an excellent substitute for aspirin. For a long time already, pediatricians have prescribed this medication even to the youngest children with the strongest common cold, with flu and some infectious diseases accompanied by fever and intense heat. Just admonish: "Keep the dosage!"
Most often as an anesthetic drugfor children from 3 months to 12 years are called nurofen, as well as ibuprofen, a faspik (they are from the same pharmacological group). They have the same effect as paracetamol, aspirin. Indispensable in severe pain syndrome. Applied with acute colds, infectious diseases, during the period after vaccination (if there was a reaction in the form of fever, heat), as well as with pains of different localization (dental, ear, head, muscles). Contraindicated asthmatics, with ulcers, bleeding, with insufficient renal or hepatic, as well as blood diseases.
In conclusion, I would like to add: Anesthetics, of course, relieve unbearable pain, but their reception is justified only in extreme cases! Especially when it comes to children, nursing mothers and pregnant women. Always consult a doctor before taking a little-known drug. A well-known take only in extreme cases, in small quantities, in strict accordance with the instruction (or even less).
