Ciprinol in pregnancy

Question:

- How can cyprinol pregnancy affect you? Ms. doctor told me that it would be the risk of bone malformations, I mention that I know for sure that the date of conception was August 19, 2006, on September 9, I did a pregnancy test that came out negative, and from 15 to September 19 , because of an otitis, I took ciprinol 500 mg (total 4000 mg); on 20 I did the pregnancy test that came out positive, the probe ultrasound told me that the baby is 4 weeks and 3 days and 10 mm, please tell me what the risks are and if you know any cases similar. Thank you very much!

Answer:


Ciprinol is an antimicrobial agent (antibiotic) whose active substance is Ciprofloxacin. Ciprofloxacin should not be prescribed in children, adolescents, pregnant women or lactating women, because there is no experience of product safety in this patient group and because of animal studies, it is possible that the drug may cause joint cartilage alteration in an immature organism.
Animal studies did not reveal the appearance of teratogenic effects (malformations). Considering that the fact is already consumed (you took this medicine knowing that you are pregnant), very strict monitoring of the pregnancy is required, with repeated ultrasounds, in order to detect early any possible negative effects that may occur; also in your case it is important to perform prenatal screening tests: triple-test of maternal serum, which determines the amount of hormones (alpha-fetoprotein, human chorionic gonadotropin and estriol) in the maternal blood; this test is performed in weeks 18-22 of pregnancy.
If the results of this test are modified, further investigations will be indicated (the triple-test is for guidance only) which would confirm or confirm the presence of fetal disorders: morphofetal ultrasound, amnioscopy, etc.
