Hi Vasim,
Thanks for the query.
I believe, your main concerns are
1. The effect of Colimax on the pregnancy and baby
2. The disadvantages of not getting Calcimax Tablet. the extra water in womb is because of Colimax?
Colimax is combination of two drugs-Dicyclomine and Paracetamol. Paracetamol is a safe drug in pregnancy. Many studies have been done in pregnant women, and it is considered safe.
Dicyclomine is also considered safe, though the studies have been done only in Animals, and scientists didn't find any bad effects on the pregnant animals and their babies.
So, be assured, it will not cause any problem to your unborn baby.
Calcimax is given to pregnant women to meet the extra demand of pregnancy and the baby. In many countries, it is not given routinely to all the pregnant women. If your wife has taken good amount of calcium in diet, and generally speaking she is fine, the non intake of calcimax will not make much of difference. As far as baby is concerned, your baby will fulfill its increasing demand from mother's blood and bones.
The slightly excess water in the womb is not because of Colimax. Slight excess of fluid could be just a normal variation, and by serial USG ( ultrasound study) your Doctor will monitor and manage her.
I hope i have answered your query.
