Medikasie en swangerskap
Ek gebruik tans die volgende medikasie. Aropax 20mg. Leponex 25mg, Limictin 50mg en PurBlocka 40mg daagliks. Is daar enige van hierdie medikasie wat ek summier sal moet stop as ek verwagtend raak en hoekom? As ek dit summier moet stop sal my baba nie ontrekkingsiptome ondervind nie, want ek sal tog nie weet ek verwag van die oomblik van verwekking ag nie?

Baie dankie

It would be better to change from Aropax to Prozac during pregnancy. Leponex has not really been studied in pregnancy, but animal studies have not shown any birth defects. Purblocka is not ideal to use in pregnancy and I cannot find Limictin in the Drug reference manual. Before changing any treatment, you should discuss this with your doctor and you will have to weigh up the risks versus the benefits. It may also be possible to adjust your medication to ones that are more suitable in pregnancy.
