Characteristic of Spasmalgon
This medicine is a combined analgesic. In its composition, there are several components that provide spasmolytic action. This is analgin, fenpiverinia bromide, metamizol sodium, pituophenone hydrochloride. The medicine relaxes the smooth muscles of the internal organs, reduces their tone, relieves inflammation, reduces the motility of the stomach and intestines.
As a rule, the patient feels the effect of the drug 20-30 minutes after taking it.
Spazmalgon is prescribed for diseases of the digestive system, colic, biliary dyskinesia, cystitis. Contraindications to its use - individual intolerance of the components, glaucoma, renal and hepatic insufficiency. The medicine is not prescribed for suspected pathologies requiring surgical intervention.
When treating this drug, there may be side effects in the form of increased blood pressure, irritability, nausea, arrhythmia, headache and visual impairment.
Spasmalgon and pregnancy
The antispasmodic contains in its composition analgin. It is he who, when carrying a child, presents the greatest danger. The matter is that this substance belongs to the category of anti-inflammatory non-steroid agents. And they have a negative impact on the fetus, in particular, lead to congenital anomalies of development.
If a woman takes Spazmalgon in the last weeks of pregnancy, it can lead to weak labor. When this drug is taken repeatedly, then it is possible even to reschedule the term.
If we talk about the effect of the drug on the fetus, it can provoke an early overlapping of the duct between the pulmonary artery and the aorta, lung problems. Prolonged exposure to analgin, that is, the frequent use of a pregnant Spasmalgon, provokes the development of suppression of the immune system (agranulocytosis). Then even an easy form of cold can lead to serious complications.
For the sake of justice it is worth noting that in some European countries, it was the negative effect of the drug on immunity that caused its prohibition. At us manufacture of such medicines is authorized, but preconditions to interdiction too exist.
Gynecologists categorically do not recommend taking this medication for anesthesia in the first trimester, when the organs of the unborn child are laid, and in the last 6 weeks of gestation. Physicians are not so categorical about Spasmalgon's treatment in the second trimester, but only if it's a single pill. In any case, it is necessary to consult with the treating gynecologist about the use of pain medications.
Alternatives to Spasmalagon
It is not always possible to consult the doctor promptly when pain occurs. Therefore, it is worth knowing about the anesthetized medications that are allowed during pregnancy. The most common is Paracetamol. Most obstetrician-gynecologists prefer it. This medicine "dulls" the pain, produces an anti-inflammatory and antipyretic effect. Such combined properties can not boast of any anesthetic drug. And although Paracetamol penetrates in a small amount through the placenta, it does not affect fetal development. For this reason, WHO experts call the drug the safest analgesic for the baby's bearing.
Well eliminates pain and Nurofen. It should be taken with a clear compliance with the dosage.
Eliminate the pain syndrome in future mothers can Riabal and No-shpa. Both drugs have antispasmodic properties. Some gynecologists even recommend that future mothers always carry with them in a No-shpu handbag. This drug, in addition to anesthesia, also weakens the tone of the uterus.
A woman should remember that painkillers when carrying a child are prohibited if there are certain diseases. These are diseases of the digestive system, bronchial asthma and other ailments.
