But-spa with breastfeeding

Of course, nursing mothers should avoid taking any medications, but sometimes for some reason without medication is indispensable. For example, if there are postpartum complications, with the development of acute diseases or exacerbation of chronic diseases.

In these cases, you can not be delayed with treatment, but you need to choose medicines very carefully. And of course, you need to make a decision only after consulting a doctor. Be sure to read the instructions to the drug, assessing the ratio of benefits for the mother and harm to the child. It will not be superfluous to consult with the pediatrician to clarify the side effects on the baby's body.

Usually, nursing mothers prescribe the least toxic drugs and those that do not penetrate breast milk. But-shpa during lactation is not recommended, but its reception, in principle, is possible. If the treatment involves a slow intake of the drug, the substances in the medicine do not have time to reach the concentration, which is dangerous for the health of the baby.

And yet, one should not get involved in taking no-shpa during breastfeeding, as she has a long list of contraindications, among which pregnancy and lactation are marked as periods of careful drug intake.

But-shpu is prescribed more often than other antispasmodics during pregnancy and lactation, since this drug is the least dangerous in comparison with other drugs of a similar or similar effect. But if the doctor appoints a nursing mother a long course of taking no-shpy, the feeding will have to stop.

Of course, you can try to fight for the preservation of lactation, if you are willing to regularly express milk throughout the course of treatment, and the child is not fed from a bottle, and using a syringe (without needles), pouring the mixture into the mouth.
