Which anti-allergy is safe for a breastfeeding mother?

Which anti-allergy is safe for a breastfeeding mother?

There are some: Cetirizine and Loratadine are 2 considered relatively safe during pregnancy and breast feeding. Thorough studies have not been done in humans (no volunteers!) so they cannot be considered completely safe. Very small amounts get into breast milk and what ever gets absorbed gets metabolized by the infant's liver before circulating. So not much left. There are also prescribed for young children ...Read more

If ok'd by the FDA: Any medication can have bad side effects in a few people. Medications that are approved for long term use by the fda are considered safe, but doctors and patients still keep an eye out for undesired reactions. Also, "long term" may mean 6 weeks, 6 months, 6 years, etc... Doctors on healthtap are U.S. Doctors, so generally do not have information on foreign medications. ...Read more

Is dhatifen syrup a good cure for cough ? Is it safe taking alongside mirt and fedac co syrup ?

Use caution: Dhatifen is used in the treatment of asthma and allergic bronchitis, including symptoms of allergic rhinitis or hay fever. It takes days if not weeks of use to be fully effective. It works by moderating an active immune response. I don't believe it would be particularly effective to just use for a random cough. ...Read more

Is tiki tiki safe for g6pd?

Would not recommend: In trying to determine what is in "tiki-tiki", I have run across a number of g6pd forums asking a similar question and the consensus is not safe for g6pd. I do not know why you want to take tiki-tiki (or give tiki-tiki to your child), but i would say the risk/benefit ratio favors staying away from it if you have g6pd. A hemolytic crisis is not worth it. Find something else instead of tiki-tiki. ...Read more

Is bonna infant milk safe for baby has g6pd?

Is bonna infant milk safe for baby has g6pd?

Yes, however...: Breast milk is a far better food for babies than any formula but Bonna formula is safe for babies with G6PD.

What are the baby foods safe to feed a g6pd deficiency baby?

Most are safe: From the time when babies are sitting to when they walk is a marvelous opportunity to introduce many flavors of foods (www.Drgreene.Com/colorin). Kids with g6pd deficiency should avoid fava beans. Some kids - depending on their variant - should also avoid blueberries (& yogurts containing them), soy, other legumes, some chinese herbs, or tonic water (not great for babies anyway).

If I am a beta thalassemia carrier female is it safe to have kids with a G6PD male?

If I am a beta thalassemia carrier female is it safe to have kids with a G6PD male?

Avoid 2 bad genes: One way to avoid having a child who inherited a bad trait, is to make sure that NOT both parents carry genes for that bad trait. So, a woman carrying a thalassemia gene (beta mutations are on chromosome 16, or alpha on 11) wants to marry a man with NO thalassemia mutations. Likewise, a man with G6PD (on chromosome X) wants to marry a woman with no G6PD. A doctor can check both the man and woman. ...Read more
