Is Nexium Safe To Take During Pregnancy
Bad gerd during pregnancy- after I started feeling like food was getting stuck in throat. Took nexium for 2 weeks and it resolved, stopped taking it and now feeling that kind of stuck feeling again. Should I have kept taking nexium longer?
GERD: As long as your OB is okay with taking Nexium, then start it again.
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Not sure if pregnant yet, had unprotected sex before egg was released, I never took my Nexium (esomeprazole) pills for erosive esophagitis. Does it affect pregnancy?
Difficulty swallowing foods like bread-- it seems like it gets a bit stuck but it goes down a few seconds later. Some foods are fine. Had bad reflux during pregnancies but resolved after births. Nexium helps with the swallowing. Gerd? Stricture?
I'm on morphine, flexeril, vimovo (esomeprazole and naproxen) and lyrica. I have had a blood test and at home pregnancy tests all negative but feel pregnant can they all be wrong?

Limited options: Nothing is 100% safe in pregnancy. Doctors usually recommend Tylenol (acetaminophen) as directed on the bottle. Most will tell you to avoid NSAIDs (ibuprofen, Aleve, Advil). It's best to try to figure out the cause of the pain and see if there are other options (like heat for muscle soreness, etc.).
Depends: Depends on the amount that is taken. "The use of inositol during pregnancy remains controversial as of 2011. In a December 1998 article published in "Alternative Medicine Review, " Lisa Colodny, Pharm. D. and Dr. Ronald L. Hoffman report that inositol may induce uterine contractions. Thus, taking inositol while pregnant has the potential to cause miscarriage, preterm labor or low birth weight."See 1 more doctor answer
Probably- moderation: As is usually the case, no research has been done so no one knows for sure. However, lysine occurs naturally in many foods so every woman who has ever been pregnant has consumed lysine in their diet. Thus, it is certainly safe in moderation. The only possible concern is high doses may lower levels of arginine, another amino acid. Doses up to 1500 mg/day are probably safe.
None: Oral decongestants are contraindicated during pregnancy. Because of the potential risks of medication, and risks associated with infection and other problems, I would recommend identifying the cause of congestion (it may just be hormone changes due to pregnancy) so that therapy can be targeted more precisely.See 1 more doctor answer
Antibiotics: This really depends on how far into the pregnancy you are. Also, the site of the infection will also determine what antibiotics are appropriate in pregnancy. The earlier in the pregnancy has the greatest restriction for any medications.
Advise against: University of Maryland Medical Centers (USA) advise pregnant women not to ingest turmeric. Http://umm. Edu/health/medical/altmed/herb/turmeric
Lexapro (escitalopram): Like most antidepressants known as ssri, it is category c in pregnancy which means safe in lab animals studied but no contraindication in humans as long as closely monitored by md, especially in 1st. Trimester where fetus is developing, and around time of labor/delivery to watch for side effects to newborn.
Yes: It is pregnancy category b, you can take it.
Many options: Always a challenge, sleep in pregnancy can be truly difficult to obtain your adequate share. Medicines are sometimes used. Many are considered safe. That being said less is always more in pregnancy. Use of benedryl, Ambien and Lunesta (eszopiclone) in their standard doses are considered safe in pregnancy. Find natural options, stretching, yoga, and meditation. These will be your best and safest bets!
