Pregnancy of Deflax in details

Pregnancy is always a special situation where every action or side effect of the drug varies when compared to a situation of a non-pregnant patient. It is not only because the pregnant woman's metabolism differs due to the hormonal and other changes happened to her, but also because every medicine or its metabolite passes to the baby and shows its action there. The only thing is, be cautious, attentive and well supervised when you take any single drug in pregnancy. The interactions can vary in pregnancy, and the dosage may differ as well. Strict supervision of the Physician is mandatory.

Deflax crosses the placenta. Orofacial clefts, intrauterine growth restriction, and decreased birth weight have been reported following maternal use. Hypoadrenalism may occur in newborns following maternal use of corticosteroids in pregnancy; monitor.

Deflax breastfeeding

When a drug is taken when the patient is breast feeding, a part of the drug is secreted in her breast milk and is passed to the baby. The dosage of the medicine to mother and baby are different, and many drugs actions are side effects when you take them without a disease, and what if you the baby takes them without a disease? What if the drug is contraindicated in newborns, infants or children? So, breastfeeding is a very alarming situation when the mother is on medications. Ask your Physician or Pediatrician about the effect of the drug on the baby and how much is excreted in breast milk and if it harms the baby!

Corticosteroids have been detected in breast milk in low amounts, however, specific information on this drug in breast milk is unknown. Theoretically, the presence of exogenous corticosteroids in breast milk could suppress growth, interfere with endogenous corticosteroid production, or cause other unwanted effects in breast fed babies, but in doses of up to 50 mg per day, this drug is unlikely to produce a degree of adrenal suppression that would affect the breastfed infant. Higher doses may be expected to affect the degree of adrenal suppression and should be used with caution. There are no data on the effects on milk production.

Benefit should outweigh risk Excreted into human milk: Unknown Comments: Doses of up to 50 mg daily are unlikely to cause systemic effects in the breastfed infant.
