Do not forget also that the immunity of a pregnant woman naturally decreases, and along with an infection this can lead to undesirable consequences, in particular, to the development of pyelonephritis. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary to be treated, and often Monural is prescribed for infections of the urinary tract during pregnancy.
Monural is an antibiotic. The drug is modern, new, but has already proved its effectiveness in the treatment of infections of the lower urinary tract. It is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that destroys most of the bacteria that cause infections. It is a granule designed to prepare a solution that must be taken in.
Convenience of treatment Monural is that the medicine is taken on a one-off basis (although, sometimes, several receptions are prescribed). However, it does not cause significant side effects. Although rashes, nausea, diarrhea, heartburn, allergic reactions are quite possible.
It is important to know that food slows the absorption of the drug, therefore between reception of Monural and reception of meal should pass a break at least in 2 hours. To increase the effectiveness of treatment, to create the greatest concentration of active substance in the urine, Monural is recommended to be taken after emptying the bladder.
Can I take Monural during pregnancy?
What to say - in pregnancy, it is undesirable to take any medications, not just antibiotics. Especially such strong. Many women are not so much embarrassed by the fact that the medicine belongs to a group of antibiotics, but rather that it can completely destroy the bacterial flora in the urinary tract at one time. Obviously, a weak drug can not be called.
However, Monural is taken one-time, and it's better than taking a whole course of pills. Besides, doctors argue that for pregnancy and fetus, it does not pose a danger. And there is even evidence that Monural does not contribute to the development of pathologies and deformities in the fetus, and also does not have a toxic effect on it, that is, does not possess a teratogenic and embryotoxic effect. In view of this, he is often prescribed during pregnancy.
However, the instruction says that the reception of Monural in the period of gestation is possible only in extreme cases, when the intended use for the mother exceeds the possible risk to the fetus. Hence, the risk is still possible - this time. Secondly, on permitted medicines, they write that reception is possible during pregnancy. It is alarming and the fact that when applying Monural in the period of breastfeeding, it is necessary to cancel breastfeeding of the baby. And finally, if you look for a list of drugs allowed and forbidden during pregnancy, you will see that there are no data on Monural. The effect of the drug on the fetus has not been studied. And some sources say that it has an unexpressed teratogenic effect, that is, it affects the development of the fetus.
Doctors comfort the expectant mothers: if they designate the Monural, they know what they are doing. Selection of a medicine for the treatment of the bladder is carried out taking into account the cause and severity of the disease. In addition, Monural is considered one of the safest antimicrobial drugs. So there is no reason to worry. And you yourself can not take the medicine yourself, of course, only on the prescription of the doctor (which should happen in case of emergency). Therefore, the instructions and write this threatening warning.
However, in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy from Monural should still be abandoned. During this period, no treatment is desirable. And if you doubt the medical appointment, you can consult another specialist to be quiet.
