I Am constipated & have hemorrhoids from the birth of my child. What medicines can I take that don't have any effects on breastfeeding?
Constipation.: In this setting, the ideal would be to avoid medication altogether, if possible. I would begin by increasing the amount of fiber in your diet and considering taking a fiber supplement, such as Metamucil, daily. When you do that, you need to increase your fluid intake also. If you increase this gradually, it will not cause excess gassiness. Good luck.
Can you tell me about it's like to take steroid suppositories for hemorrhoids while breast feeding.?
Hemorrhoids: The steroid suppositories should have strictly a local effect and decrease inflammation and itching. There are local numbing medicines you can get if that doesn't give you sufficient relief.
Aspirin isn't likely: To have a significant impact on shrinking your hemorrhoids. Sitz bathes can be helpful. Sit in bathtub w warm water. There needs to be enough water to submerge anal area. Soak for about 15 minutes – several times a day. An alternative is placing ¼ cup of witch hazel ; warm water in a basin. Soak for at least 15 mins, at least twice a day. There are a number of over-the-counter meds too.
Ciprodex otic safe: According to Lactmed, "maternal use of an ear drop or eye drop that contains ciprofloxacin presents negligible risk for the nursing infant." The dex in ciprodex is dexamethasone, it is also negligible risk for the breastfeeding infant due to small dosage of medication. Ciprodex is safe to use while breastfeeding.
As a food flavoring: There shouldn't be an issue with the occasional small amounts you would use in cooking. There are no studies on its use at higher supplement doses while breastfeeding, so it is recommended to avoid it.
No: No, this is not a good idea.
Depends: Creams/lotions/powders that you apply to the skin are not absorbed in significant quantities so they are fine to use when breastfeeding. This assumes that they are never applied near the breast, where nipple contamination may occur.
General rule: In general, any lotion or oil you apply the your skin does not transfer meds inside your body that might be passed into breast milk.
Phenylepherine: Because of its poor bioavailibility the drug can be used during breastfeeding, albeit sparingly.
