... isoxsuprine hydrochloride sustained release tablets for 15 days... should i take it
Did your Dr know you were pregnant when he prescribed the medication? If he did know that you were pregnant, and he prescribed it, you should be okay. We all know it is best not to take meds when pregnant but in some situation meds are needed. I am not familiar with this medicine and was unable to find it on several resources, so I can't even give you an opinion on it. There is a risk to benefit ratio when prescribing to pregnant women. If the benefits outweigh the risks, then they will go ahead and prescribe. If your Dr knew you were pregnant, and he went ahead and prescribed it, then he feels it is of more benefit to you than a risk. If your Dr did NOT know you were pregnant, then dont take it until you talk to the Dr and let him know you are carrying (pregnant) and ask if it is still okay to take it. Dont take it unless it is cleared by a Dr who knows you are pregnant. If this Dr who prescribed this medication was not your OB-GYN you might want to discuss the risks of taking the medicine with your OB-GYN. That is their specialty after all. It is always good to be cautious when considering taking medicine when you are pregnant. If you feel you can get by without it or your health is not in danger by not taking it, then it is best not to take it. If your stomach issues are bad enough that you are unable to eat or drink, then that can endanger the child, and your health as well, so you would definitely want to take it. When you take medicines while pregnant it is always best to take the least amount to alleviate symptoms unless it is something like an antibiotic then, of course, you would take it as prescribed. If the medicine is prescribed on an as needed basis, then you would follow the rule of taking the smallest amount to alleviate your symptoms and only if you really need it. I hope this helps some for you and has not confused you more!
