Well, let's try to figure out what kind of medicine Diflucan is, how and with what it can be eaten a pot-bellied lady.
Diflucan during pregnancy: instruction
Diflucan is an antifungal drug, which has a very wide spectrum of action and cures many serious diseases. The main active substance (fluconazole) inhibits the synthesis of certain substances (which are vital to the cells of the fungi), so the cells of the "parasites" simply die off.
The list of indications is impressive. Diflucan is treated with genital candidiasis, candidal balanitis, candidiasis of the mucous membranes (including mucous membranes of the mouth and throat and esophagus), cryptococcosis, generalized candidiasis, skin mycoses, onychomycosis and cutaneous candidiasis infections, coccidioidomycosis, paracoccidioidomycosis, sporotrichosis and histoplasmosis.
It's clear that the list of "pobochek" will be considerable, because it's not unfortunate, but most of the drugs "one treat - the other cripple." Therefore, if you are preparing to receive Diflucan, then prepare for possible "surprises" in the form of headaches, dizziness, seizures, diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Among the side effects and Stevens-Jones syndrome, and alopecia, and toxic necrolysis of the epidermis, and leukopenia, and neutropenia, and anaphylaxis, and increased plasma cholesterol and other troubles. Side effects only increase if you do not comply with the dosage and duration of the prescribed treatment.
Each individual disease is treated differently for each patient, even by Diflucan. Sometimes he is appointed once, sometimes in a whole course. Naturally, he decides how to treat a sore, not your intuition or logic, but an experienced specialist.
Do not prescribe Diflucan to women with hypersensitivity to the components of the drug, and also in the period of lactation and pregnancy - this is how the instruction "recommends". It's only from somewhere pregnant women about Diflukan know everything, having tested its effect on themselves.
Diflucan in pregnancy: practice
I just adore the phrase in the instructions to many drugs (Diflucan in the same number): Adequate and controlled studies of pregnant women have not been carried out, or Take the doctor's prescription, if the expected benefit of treatment exceeds the possible risk to the fetus. After all, everything is black and white. Nevertheless, questions are not uncommon: is it possible to treat thrush during pregnancy with diflucane? And will not Diflucan harm my child? And was the doctor giving me a very high dose? and so on and so forth.
"Rummage" on the Internet, find information, that there are cases of multiple congenital malformations in newborns whose mothers were "carried away" during the gestation period with the use of Fluconazole (and this is our Diflucan), but the relationship between these disorders and the medication intake is not established.
As always, all the responsibility is on the woman herself, because doctors are trusted, but we like to check them. Most gynecologists recommend pregnant women from Diflukan to refuse in the first half of pregnancy altogether, and in the second they are treated only in the most extreme and in the most severe cases. If you take the medicine once in a therapeutic dose, then the pathology of development in the fetus should not arise, and if you exceed the dosage, or (which in general is unacceptable!) Appoint yourself Diflucan alone, then troubles can not be avoided.
But the most effective advice is this: responsibly approach the planning of the child, heal all the sores long before pregnancy (even let Diflukanom) and enjoy an interesting situation.
That's exactly the "sweet" pregnancy you want! Do not be ill!
