This ailment can appear in everyone. During pregnancy, the risk of allergy increases by approximately 35%. And if a woman is predisposed to various kinds of allergic reactions - so in general by 80%!
To date, almost all the ailments have a lot of medicines. Allergy is no exception. Suprastin, Pipolphen, Tavegil, Claritin, Fexadine, Diphenhydramine - is not a complete list of medicines. All would be nothing, but only if you are not responsible for yourself alone, the choice is much more difficult. Practically in the instructions of all named preparations it is clearly written: application during pregnancy and during lactation is strictly contraindicated.
And if you still need to treat? They say that the most harmless for a pregnant woman in the treatment of an allergy is Suprastin. But remember: no "amateur"! Strictly for the purpose of an allergist!
Suprastin belongs to the group of antihistamines. It is widely used in the treatment of various allergic diseases: conjunctivitis, Quincke's edema, urticaria, drug rash, rhinitis, serum sickness, various skin diseases (eczema, contact dermatitis, toxicoderma), bronchial asthma.
You should know that the allergic cause is the ingestion of an allergen (a foreign substance) into the body. In response, an inflammatory reaction occurs, resulting in the formation of biologically active substances (usually with allegri-histamine). As a result, the main symptoms of allergy are manifested: cough, rash, runny nose, swelling. Suprastin inhibits histamine activity, blocks its receptors. Thus, the drug eliminates the swelling of the mucous membranes, facilitates breathing, speeds up treatment, and also reduces itching.
Suprastin is prescribed, as a rule, in tablets for oral administration. Only in acute cases of allergic reactions suprastin should be administered intravenously. The dose of the drug depends on the body weight, the age of the patient, the severity of the disease. Prescribe Suprastin one tablet 25 mg 3 times a day. The daily dose should not exceed 100 mg.
If an overdose occurs, call a doctor immediately. Before he comes, make a lavage of the stomach, drink activated charcoal to reduce the absorption of the drug into the body. Signs of an overdose: inhibition, convulsions, psychomotor agitation, depression.
Among the side effects - weakness, lethargy, dizziness. Very rarely - nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or diarrhea. In the presence of gastric ulcer, glaucoma, prostate adenoma - from the use of the drug should be discarded.
In the case of pregnancy, we again draw your attention to the fact that a doctor should prescribe the treatment. Especially in the first trimester of pregnancy, when the organs of the future child are formed, and in the last weeks.
It should also be known that if a mother has an allergic reaction - this does not mean that they also appeared in the fetus. Substances that caused allergies, and antibodies developed in response to them through the placenta do not penetrate. But some components of the drug can still pass the placental barrier. But what impact they produce on the fetus - doctors do not speak, because there is no reliable information on this matter. Perhaps, drugs against allergies can cause a decrease in uteroplacental blood flow, which completely ensures the life of the fetus. Also, a child in the womb undergoes a change in her condition.
The main thing in the treatment of allergy during pregnancy should be not the elimination of her symptoms, but the complete elimination of contact with the allergen. Be sure to consult with an allergist, go through all the necessary research.
Let your baby be born strong, healthy and without allergies !!!
