Not only the paracetamol does not increase malformations, but it seems even able to reduce the malformations that may be related to the fever, if taken for this reason.
data were used from the National Birth Defects Prevention Study (NBDPS), a case-control study based on the population, and were involved women who have given birth in the period 1997-2004.
were excluded women who said they had taken paracetamol in a combination product during the first quarter.
The analysis involved a total of 11.610 children in the group cases and 4,500 children in the control group.
overall, the acetaminophen no è associated with an increased risk of birth defects.
Among the women who reported an infection in the first trimester and fever, use of acetaminophen has been associated with a lower frequency of malformations of the head and mouth.
Here is a case where the old adage “don’t take drugs in pregnancy” is further defeated by the best “, and take medicines when the doctor says”.
you should Not let the fever rise, or remain high, while the influence.
A suppository, or a tablet of paracetamol, according to this study, give relief to the mother and protect the child.
Even a cold patch, of course, but paracetamol works well and readily on the internal temperature, while the cold patch increases the evaporation and dà relief, but not è così effective.
were excluded from the study women who had used drugs associated (paracetamol is associated with so many other active principles!), and then you have to remember to use it pure.
And to drink, drink a lot, and with a fever, but not hot things, otherwise when it drops the temperature? better a good dose of fresh water. And one tablet of paracetamol.
