Posted on Sat, 15 Oct 2016
Question: Hi. 10 days back, hot oil spilled on my thumb. I applied Silver Nitrate ointment. From yesterday I observed a little swelling in my thumb and it's paining a lot. Doc prescribed Myclav - 625 and Myoflex. Are these tablets safe to use during lactation? I m feeding my 1.5 yrs old daughter. Thanks.

Brief Answer:
Myclav is safe

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

Myclav is safe during lactation.

I need to know constituents of myoflex. If it contains thiocolchicoside, then it should NOT bet taken during breastfeeding.
Paracetamol and ibuprofen are the only two painkillers considered safe during pregnancy and lactation.

Hope it helps.
