Pregnant women are at risk for developing ARVI and ARI. But if we talk specifically about such a phenomenon as a common cold, it is also at risk for developing allergic reactions. Seasonal and allergic rhinitis among women in the situation is a rather common phenomenon. And in addition to all they often very often develop and so-called rhinitis of pregnant women - a state of permanent nasal congestion, associated directly with pregnancy.
Many of us, out of habit, turn to Nazivin for help - it costs a penny, helps quickly and without fail. But here's the trouble - it causes a very fast addiction, and soon the former effect is no longer observed. And what about security? Maybe it's better not to use Nazivin at all to future mothers?
Nazivin during pregnancy: instruction
Nazivin is a vasoconstrictor drug. It reduces swelling of the nasal mucosa and upper respiratory tract. Nazivin is indicated for the recovery of a complicated nasal breathing under various conditions: during rhinitis, sinusitis, acute respiratory infections. Apply Nazivin and for the preparation of nasal passages for examination and conduction of medical ENT procedures.
Nazivin comes in the form of drops and spray. In the instruction it is recommended to carry out processing of nasal passages not more often 2-3 times a day. As for pregnant women - the drug is not advised to use, except in the most acute situations, and in this case it is better to use the children's form.
In each nasal passage, one or two drops or 1-2 injections of Nazivin should be given. During pregnancy it is better to use Nazivin in a child's dosage - 0, 01% (for newborns) or 0, 025% (for children under 6 years). For greater safety, it is recommended not to bury the solution in the nose, but to wipe the nasal passages with moistened turkeys.
Adverse reactions are rare, say pharmacists, but still possible. This is dryness or burning of the nasal mucosa, sneezing, nausea, a feeling of malaise or fatigue, headaches, changes in blood pressure, sleep disturbances. Therefore, if you suffer from cardiovascular diseases, you often have high or low blood pressure, as well as diabetes mellitus and in some other cases, Nasivin should be used with extreme caution. To avoid trouble, always consult a doctor before. And in general, if the nose does not breathe at all, then Nazivin for the rapid resumption of nasal breathing - this is exactly what the testers say. He will save many people, because no other drugs take their edema so well. But the trouble is - you can not use it all.
Can Nazivin during pregnancy
The instruction to Nazivin says: the use of the drug during pregnancy and during lactation is possible only after a thorough assessment of the relationship of benefit to the mother and the risk to the fetus or baby. In simple words, doctors and pharmacists translate it this way: it is contraindicated for pregnant and lactating women. And to this can still tell a lot of horror stories, in detail describing all sorts of injuries, waiting for the baby after you apply these drops.
Nazivin contains oxymetazoline. It is this that is dangerous. And there is an opinion that it is not a child, but mother, because of the possible reaction of her body to the drug. Is there an alternative to Nazivin?
There are a lot of recommendations. First, there are more sparing drops, which are permitted for use during pregnancy. Some of them will be advised by your gynecologist or therapist. You can use a homeopathic spray Euphorbium Composita, ointment and drops Pinosol, Eva-Menol ointment.
Aqua-Maris does a good job, though, it's not a drop at all, but sea water, but absolutely no harm, and the nose is washed perfectly. You can try protargol - it is done in pharmacies and assigned to children. An excellent effect gives a wash of the nose with water with salt and iodine. And if you do not have allergies - experiment with essential oils, for example, take a eucalyptus with peach oil.
"But none of this does not help!", you say in desperation. If everything is tried, and none of the sparing methods is suitable, then do this and use what will facilitate your breathing. Many women begin to suffer from rhinitis of pregnant women from the very first days of pregnancy. Some of them have certain problems with the nose and constantly "sit" on the drops. If from all the drugs you have tried before or now, only Nazivin is suitable for you - you need to drip. You should breathe normally, because breathing only reduces mouth oxygen by half, even if it is not felt. Pregnant should be comfortable. And when she suffocates from the stuffy nose - you definitely need to dig in something. All the warnings and advice on choosing lighter drugs, of course, are true and relevant. But the tormented pregnant women claim that only survivors of this nightmare without air can understand them. Therefore, If you belong to such poor things - do not worry and drip Nazivin. After all, your nerves, stress and dejected state of health will bring your child much more harm than a couple of drops of medicine. Yes, and practice shows that very many pregnant women have neglected the ban on these drops and gave birth to beautiful healthy children!
Of course, you can not abuse anyone! Reviews about Nazivin testify that prolonged use causes addiction to the drug and a decrease in vasoconstrictive effect. To prevent this phenomenon, it is necessary to take breaks when applying Nazivin every five to seven days. Try to be content with the children's Nazivin - he is more sparing. Do not exceed the dosage!
Breathe freely! And let no problems with the nose prevent you from fully enjoying this special period!
