Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern. Pregnancy is associated with multiple symptoms and drug use is subjected to benefit risk ratio.

There are evidences where avil and wysolone have been used without any resulting complications. As polaramine did not help you, your doctors have started this combination. Please follow the instructions given by your gynecologist religiously.

Calcium, iron and protein supplements have beneficial effects; you may continue them.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you.

Thank you

Good to hear from you again

According to scientific data available, iron and calcium have important role during pregnancy. However if you find that the itching you are having is mainly after taking the supplements, then you can stop them. It is ok now.

If I were to be your treating doctor, I would stop the protein powder first as certain protein components can be allergic to some individuals. Protein allergy is more common than iron / calcium allergy.
Iron pills can be stopped if your hemoglobin levels are well into the normal range (more than 11gms/dl).

In short, you can stop the supplements one by one safely if those are causing the difficulties in you. That should not be of any problem.

Hope I answered all your questions. Please feel free to post follow-ups if you have other clarification before closing and rating this answer. I will be happy to explain or expand on any issue you may have.

Thanks for the follow up.

It is safe to use wysolone and avil tablets as suggested by your doctors. Please follow the instructions strictly. It can be gradually stopped once you are relieved off itching.

On the other hand, your hemoglobin levels of 12.6gm/dl are in normal limits. Since you said that itching is better when you are not on iron, calcium and protein supplement, you can discuss with your treating doctor and stop the supplements. I find it safe to stop them.

It is important to have a proper diet during pregnancy, especially since you are eating for yourself and the baby. Include vegetables and fruits along with normal food that you are having.

Hope I answered all your questions. If you have no further queries, please close this discussion. Your reviews are appreciated.
