When Asparks need it?
No pregnant woman should prescribe her own treatment, let alone Asparkam. Only the attending physician has this right, if he has serious reasons to conduct a course of treatment. For example, pregnancy has come and your "companions" are fatigue, drowsiness, apathy, dry skin, weakness, bloating, increased vomiting, low blood pressure and tachycardia. All this notorious toxicosis - you will say, but he is the culprit of hypokalemia. If vomiting is very frequent and strong, then the woman loses a lot of fluids and, naturally, potassium and magnesium, which are very necessary for her future child, and herself. Here it is useful Asparks for replenishment of lost trace elements.
Many more women during the "pregnancy" get acquainted with the convulsive twitching of the muscles of the extremities. The fault, again, is the lack of potassium, magnesium and calcium, which "took" the fruit to itself. Or a late toxicosis (gestosis), in which the puffiness of the limbs increases, and doctors prescribe diuretics for its elimination. Together with the liquid, important "components" again leave. And again the doctor can resort to treatment with Asparkam.
However, all this is only speculation and reasoning, since not every pregnant woman with toxicosis, gestosis and even ischemia of the heart are prescribed to Aspark.
When should Asparks not be used?
The instructions say that Asparks are contraindicated in the first trimester of pregnancy, and in the second and third it can be prescribed by a doctor in case of acute necessity. So, if you have an early toxicosis, then do not rush to the pharmacy for Asparkam. First you need to donate blood for analysis, in order to establish whether you have hypokalemia and hypomagnesemia or not. Typically, doctors in the first months of pregnant women appoint multivitamin complexes, and in their composition most often contains both potassium and magnesium.
Remember that the excess of potassium and magnesium in the body (that is, hyperkalemia and hypermagnia) is even more dangerous for a person than their lack. In case of Asparkam overdose, diarrhea, abdominal pain, thirst, puffiness and redness of the face, breathing disorder, decreased blood pressure, convulsions and even coma. Most often this happens when intravenous injection of Asparkam, if it was introduced too quickly.
Perhaps that's why pregnant women Asparks are usually prescribed in tablets (1-2 tablets after meals 2-3 times a day). The duration of treatment is determined by the doctor individually. Most Asparagus is used for at least 3 weeks. If a pregnant woman has an acute need to administer potassium and magnesium intravenously, then it should be done in medical institutions, under the strict supervision of a doctor.
