What is the drug No-shpa?
This kind of pill is present in the medicine cabinet of every woman. And all thanks to the fact that at a fairly low price, the drug has good efficiency.
The active ingredient of the drug is drotaverin, which refers to antispasmodics. These substances are able to reduce the tone of muscle fibers, thereby eliminating their spasmodic contractions, which causes pain. The highest efficiency drotaverin showed with spasms in the gastrointestinal tract, urogenital, vascular systems. It was found that this component has no effect on the tone of blood vessels, and thus does not interfere with normal blood circulation.
Is No-shpa allowed during lactation?
In order to get an answer to this kind of question, a woman should carefully read the leaflet. Thus, the instructions for the use of No-shpa indicated that when using this drug is unacceptable. However, the main argument for such a ban is the lack of clinical trials of the drug among breast-feeding women.
However, doctors themselves allow the possibility of a single use of the medicine. Therefore, if a woman is concerned about epigastric pain, then you can take the drug. Do not use No-shp during lactation for more than 2-3 days.
In what cases can be assigned No-shpa for HS?
There are diseases in which doctors recommend using this medication even with the current lactation. Serdy can be called such:
- exacerbation of cholecystitis (inflammatory process in the gallbladder);
- peptic ulcer of stomach and duodenum;
In such cases, when you can not do without a given medicine that removes spasm, and you need to take it daily, a woman is forced to refuse from breastfeeding the baby. In this case, the baby is transferred to artificial mixtures.
What are the contraindications for taking No-shpa?
As can be seen from the above, single use of the drug during breastfeeding is acceptable, i.e. in small therapeutic doses, drotaverine has no effect on the baby.
However, like any drug, No-shpa has its own contraindications, in which case it is strictly forbidden to use the medicine categorically, even once. These include:
- kidney failure;
- disruption of the cardiovascular system;
- liver disease;
- high sensitivity to the drug component;
In addition, do not reuse the drug, if there are side effects, among which:
- an increase in the number of cardiac contractions (tachycardia);
- a strong decrease in blood pressure;
headache of compressive nature;
- the appearance of vomiting;
- development of an allergic reaction.
Thus, in conclusion, I would like to say once again that, despite the fact that according to the instructions No-shpa preparation is banned during lactation, physicians admit one-time admission. If the pain appears again, you need to see a doctor to determine the exact cause.
