Can Panadol pills be taken while breastfeeding
Breastfeeding and medication
If a mother has to take medication, this is usually not a reason not to breastfeed or to wean the baby. This also applies if anesthetics were given during or after the birth. Almost all active ingredients in drugs pass into breast milk, but mostly only in such small amounts that they are not harmful to the baby. It is always advisable to discuss the use of medication with your doctor while breastfeeding.
However, if drugs are taken for a long time, for example in the case of chronic diseases, active substances can only slowly break down and accumulate in the baby's body. Medical advice is particularly important here.
The Internet portal www.embryotox.de provides independent and reliable information on drugs that are compatible with breastfeeding. Behind it is the Embryotoxicological Institute Berlin (Embryotox). Individual active ingredients and drugs can be entered in a search line and a corresponding recommendation is received. It is also possible to look for drugs for certain diseases. In addition, individual inquiries can be made.
It makes sense to use drugs that have been on the market for a long time when breastfeeding. In contrast to newly introduced drugs, most of them have many years of experience.
If possible, medication should always be taken a few hours before the next breastfeeding meal. If this is not possible, breast milk may be expressed beforehand and refrigerated or frozen so that it can be temporarily bottle-fed.
Many drugs can be used to treat everyday illnesses while breastfeeding. For example, active ingredients such as
- Ibuprofen and paracetamol for headache and toothache
- Acetylcysteine in expectorant drugs
- Penicillin as an antibiotic against bacterial infections
- Sodium picosulfate for constipation
- Dimenhydrinate for nausea and vomiting
- Magaldrat for stomach problems
- Loratadine for allergies and
- Theophylline in asthma.
However, these active ingredients should also not be taken without medical advice. In the case of minor infections, it is also better to try a home remedy first. If you have a stubborn cough or constipation, it often helps to drink a lot. If you have a cold, nasal rinses and inhalations provide quick relief. A low-dose children's nasal spray is usually sufficient against a blocked nose.
The use of herbal remedies such as herbal teas and essential oils should also be discussed with your doctor or midwife. They can change the taste of breast milk so much that the baby refuses to drink.
