How to take Sinupret during pregnancy?
Sinupret is available in the form of drops and drops, but during pregnancy, only pills can be taken (if for some reason it is impossible, then drops are prescribed), since the drops are a water-alcohol extract, and the use of alcohol in this period is prohibited.
There are no special features for pregnant women. If the doctor appointed you these pills, then he must also indicate the dosage, as well as the method of application. Usually adults take 2 tablets three times a day. It is best to drink the medicine in the morning, afternoon and evening 15 minutes before eating.
Unlike many medications, Sinupret can be taken from the first trimester of pregnancy. However, in spite of the fact that it is a herbal preparation, its reception is possible only in case of appointment of a doctor. Data on the negative effects of this drug on the fetus is not available, but during breastfeeding, for example, Sinupret is not recommended. Therefore, it's not worth it to appoint yourself.

In very rare cases, there may be pain in the upper abdomen, nausea. If side effects occur, stop taking the medication and consult a doctor.
Also with caution, Sinupret is prescribed for liver diseases, epilepsy, diseases and brain injuries. But during pregnancy absolutely all medicines are prescribed with caution. It is a mistake to think that the herbal preparation is absolutely safe for the fetus. But the fact that it is better than synthetic chemical medicines is for certain.
