In the period of expectation of a child, a huge number of women face such an unpleasant and painful symptom, as a cold. This sign in most cases becomes a consequence of colds, the probability of which is significantly increased in the autumn-spring period of the year.
Although future mothers want to get rid of manifestations of such ailments as soon as possible, it can be very difficult for them to do this, because most of the medicines are not allowed to be used during the waiting period of a new life. Meanwhile, there are effective and relatively safe medications, which, if prescribed by a doctor, can be taken, even in an "interesting" position.
In particular, one of the most popular medicines that can be used in the period of waiting for a new life is Pinosol, which has several different forms of release. In this article, we will tell you what to look for when taking this medication during pregnancy, and what contraindications it has according to the instructions.
Instructions for use of the drug Pinosol during pregnancy
The medicine is considered to be relatively safe, so doctors allow it to be used even for the treatment of pregnant women and newborn babies. This is due to the composition of this drug, because it does not include any aggressive chemical components that can harm a child in the womb.
Thus, the product Pinosol in any form of release contains natural ether extracts based on the oils of medicinal plants, namely: Scots pine, peppermint, eucalyptus, thyme and others. Thanks to the availability of such useful ingredients, the drug has an effective anti-inflammatory, immunostimulating, antimicrobial and anti-edematous action. In addition, the medicine is enriched with vitamin E, thanks to which it significantly improves and speeds up the regeneration and epithelization of the nasal mucosa.
Thus, various forms of the preparation of Pinosol are the most preferred medicines for the treatment of the common cold during pregnancy. Meanwhile, this product is capable of provoking an allergic reaction, so it should be treated with great caution.
In addition, the use of Pinosol is not advisable in all cases. Due to the characteristics of the ingredients that make up its composition, this drug is only able to help with infectious rhinitis. If a woman has an allergic or viral rhinitis, it is worth giving preference to another medicine.
How to take drops, spray and ointment Pinosol during pregnancy, according to the instructions? In most cases, future moms are prescribed this drug in the form of drops, as they very effectively soften the mucous membrane and significantly ease the condition of the expectant mother in the shortest possible time. In addition, Pinosol drops can be used for inhalations, which is also important in the period of bearing of the baby. However, some women give their preference to the spray, because it is much more convenient to use than other forms of release of the drug.
Usually, this remedy is buried with 1-2 drops 3-4 times a day for a cold, however, if necessary, according to the doctor's prescription, the dosage of the drug, especially at an early stage of the disease, can be significantly increased. Spray Pinosol, according to the instructions for use, during pregnancy, including in the trimester, injected one dose in each nasal passage 3-4 times a day.
