Among many biochemical indicators, a gynecologist will by all means control the hemoglobin level in the blood during pregnancy. And at the slightest drop it is below the norm or very close to this border, and even more so with the development of anemia during pregnancy, it will certainly appoint an iron preparation for its wards. It could be Fenyuls.
Does Feniuls need pregnancy?
Nothing special from a huge number of such drugs Fenyuls does not differ, except its composition: in addition to the actual ferrous sulfate, it contains other chemical compounds: thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, ascorbic acid, nicotinamide, calcium pantothenate, pyridoxine hydrochloride. This is a synthetic vitamin preparation in capsules, which has similar indications to the rest: iron deficiency in the body (mainly during periods of menstruation, pregnancy, breastfeeding), as well as a lack of B vitamins.
By the way, in some cases Fenyuls or similar drugs can be prescribed to a future mother, it would seem, without a valid reason: with hemoglobin above the lower limit of the norm. Most likely, it is done with a preventive purpose, if a woman expects a large baby. But always consider, that at the same level of hemoglobin in the blood, the concentration of iron can be different.
Fenules is affordable, which can please some women. But pharmacists are not very flattering about this "cheap", as they say, drug (in particular, it claims that it has a negative effect on blood cells). However, any of the expensive analogs is not much better. All of them can cause side effects, have contraindications and, in addition to questionable benefits, cause much harm to the body of a woman and a fetus.
In general, it's amazing how much chemistry is offered to future mothers under the guise of vitamins for the entire period of bearing a baby. But the problem is that not all doctors and mums are aware of natural analogs of synthetic vitamins, and iron deficiency anemia is definitely dangerous both for the pregnant woman herself and her future baby.
Therefore, from the first weeks of pregnancy should take care of its prevention. In addition to maintaining a balanced balanced diet with the obligatory presence of iron-containing vitamins, you should make daily walks in the fresh air! Otherwise, there is nothing to expect a normal level of hemoglobin.
Fenuels during pregnancy: features of application
If you are taking Fenulas during pregnancy, always pay attention to your health. Not all women are treated with the same drugs. Fenules can cause nausea, vomiting, constipation and diarrhea, epigastric pain, dizziness and other adverse reactions, at occurrence of which it is necessary to notify your doctor about this. Changing the color of urine (in bright yellow) is a normal reaction of the body to the drug and should not cause disturbances.
Fenuils during pregnancy is usually prescribed 1 capsule per day during or immediately after meals, best in the morning (often in combination with a multivitamin complex for pregnant women and Jodomarin, although the instructions are similar to the appointment not recommended). At its sole discretion, it is forbidden to take these vitamins while you are pregnant. And keep in mind that Fenyuls during pregnancy is allowed only from 14 weeks. Scheme and duration of admission should be prescribed by the attending physician, but usually Fenules is appointed cyclically: 2 weeks of admission - then 1 week of interruption, and in this mode can be applied until the end of the term.
And finally: if you suffer from heartburn and take any antacids, then Fenules should be taken separately from these drugs: they interfere with the absorption of iron.
