Pregnancy of Hemostan 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.

Hemostan crosses the placenta; concentrations within cord blood are similar to maternal serum.

Use of oral Hemostan for the long-term prophylaxis of HAE in pregnant females has been reported (González-Quevedo 2016; Machado 2017; Milingos 2009). Hemostan may be considered for long-term prophylaxis when preferred treatment is not available (WAO/EEACI [Maurer 2018]).

Intravenous Hemostan has been evaluated for the treatment of postpartum hemorrhage (Ducloy-Bouthors 2011; WOMAN Trial Collaborators 2017). A significant reduction in risk of death due to bleeding was observed when treatment was started within 3 hours of vaginal birth or cesarean section (WOMAN Trial Collaborators 2017). Hemostan is recommended for the treatment of obstetric hemorrhage when initial therapy fails (ACOG 183 2017; WHO 2017). IV Hemostan has also been studied for prophylaxis of postpartum hemorrhage in low-risk females prior to vaginal or cesarean delivery (Novikova 2015; Sentilhes 2018; Simonazzi 2016). However, available data related to prophylactic use is insufficient and use for routine prophylaxis against postpartum hemorrhage is not currently recommended outside of the context of clinical research (ACOG 183 2017).

Hemostan 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!

Hemostan should be used during lactation only if clearly needed. Excreted into human milk: Yes Excreted into animal milk: Data not available The effects in the nursing infant are unknown.

Hemostan is excreted into human milk at a concentration of about one hundredth of the corresponding serum concentrations.
