 Protargol during pregnancy: a hidden danger

What argyrosis

Argyrosis - a pigmentation of the skin, mucous membranes, internal organs, brown, black and gray or bluish color associated with the deposition of silver. Argyrosis frequently occurs in workers silver mines, the persons involved in the preparation of silver nitrate, silver polish and so on. It may be argyrosis and long-term use of high doses of drugs based on silver, for example, protargola.

Argyrosis can be general and local. Total argyrosis shown deposition of silver in the surface layers of the skin and mucous membranes, and internal organs. Local argyrosis - a deposit of silver in some individual organs.

Manifestations argyrosis

Argyrosis skin characterized by the deposition of silver granules in sweat glands and in the middle layer of skin (dermis), in connective tissue capsules of the sebaceous glands and hair follicles in the walls of blood vessels in the skin and in the muscles and nerves, hair raising .  In the oral mucosa, stomach, intestine, spleen, lymph nodes situated in the abdominal cavity, the silver particles are mostly found in the walls of blood vessels and connective tissue interlayers .  When argyrosis renal silver granules deposited in the walls of blood vessels, which is composed of renal tissue, and connective tissue .  In the liver, the silver is deposited in the walls of the veins that extend between the lobes of the liver and in the connective tissue surrounding .  Argyrosis eyes seen the deposition of silver granules in the conjunctiva .  The pigmentation of the skin and mucous membranes grows very slowly and usually reaches substantially decades after the beginning of the constant contact with silver .

Under the microscope, study deposits of silver look like a small dark brown or black granules. Such silver granules usually do not cause any reaction from the surrounding tissues and may be reduced or even disappear from the walls of the capillaries due to the release Discharges in women when there is cause for concern  Discharges in women when there is cause for concern
   their urine or sweat. But silver deposits in the connective tissues remain for life. Argyrosis may be asymptomatic, but sometimes there are signs of chronic intoxication with silver salts.

Chronic intoxication silver salts takes place as quickly. Perhaps the decrease in visual acuity, point inclusions in the lens, change the color of the pupil. May appear inflammatory disease of the gastrointestinal tract, liver enlargement and tenderness, interstitial nephritis (inflammation of the connective tissue, which is the frame of the kidneys).

Pregnancy and Protargolum

It is known that during pregnancy all the internal organs, women bear a double burden. But the biggest load in the liver and kidneys, as these bodies are removed from the body all the toxins and metabolic products. In the liver, these substances are destroyed to form a neutral metabolic products (metabolites), and then excreted in the bile or in the gastro-intestinal tract or absorbed back into the blood and then excreted through the kidneys. And since the body has to be cleaned from a very large number of products, liver and kidneys of pregnant women work in the big toes.

If during pregnancy, women have to deal with heavy metal salts (including silver), these salts begin to linger in the body (liver and kidney are simply unable to display all the toxic products) and deposited in tissues.

Now imagine that a pregnant woman has picked up and runny nose on your own risk decided treated protargola Protargol - Pharmacy survivor  Protargol - Pharmacy survivor
   (after all, not everyone knows about the properties of the drug). Perhaps she would resort to such treatment, and more than once (and perhaps in the past often used Protargolum), for pregnant women decreased immunity Immunity - types and characteristics in children in adults  Immunity - types and characteristics in children in adults
   and they are prone to colds, including runny nose. The reaction in this case can be unpredictable, as it depends on many factors: the frequency and duration of protargola currently and in the past, from hereditary characteristics and diseases of liver and kidneys, and so on. It is possible (in most cases just so happens) Protargolum not cause harm to the woman, but it is possible that it will have some symptoms of intoxication argyrosis and even silver.

During pregnancy, the effect of any, even the most secure of the drug, is unpredictable. That is why a woman should not accept anything and not to conduct any treatment (including folk) without talking to your doctor.

April 12, 2013

 papaverine during pregnancy
 Despite the fact that the preparation of the same number as that of papaverine - Nospanum is a safe drug and studied (this is confirmed by clinical studies), papaverine still continues to be applied in obstetrics. This is explained by the fact that many pregnant women find it difficult to take tablets shpy due to constant nausea. Requirement in this case, rectal suppositories with papaverine Papaverine - for pain caused by spasms of smooth muscles  Papaverine - for pain caused by spasms of smooth muscles


Why pregnant women antispasmodics

One of the major threats during pregnancy is the threat of interruption of spontaneous miscarriage Miscarriage - can you protect yourself from it?  Miscarriage - can you protect yourself from it?
   or premature birth. Very often, abortion is directly related to uterine hypertonus - its smooth muscle spasm. To suppress the motor activity of muscles of the uterus during pregnancy in a woman's body produces the female sex hormone progesterone Progesterone - norm and pathology  Progesterone - norm and pathology
 . He actively suppress such movements, but at the same time is suppressed, and the motor activity of smooth muscles of the gastrointestinal tract (heartburn appear, constipation), urinary tract (urine stagnation and the threat of the development of inflammatory processes in the kidneys) and bile ducts (bile stasis).

Sometimes all the action of progesterone is not enough, and women develop uterine hypertonus. Strengthening muscle spasm of the uterus can contribute to stress, which is constantly surrounded by pregnant women, regardless of external circumstances (the cause for concern in most cases born in the head of the woman).

Gipertonus dangerous by the fact that the muscle spasm of the uterus can compress long blood vessels that feed its wall, and it will sooner or later affect the state of the placenta, providing oxygen and nutrition of the child. Therefore, the long flowing hypertonia is always a threat of feto-placental insufficiency and retardation of fetal development. This is very dangerous because it can lead to irreversible damage on the part of the brain.

In such case the antispasmodics. Most often prescribe still Nospanum, obstetricians even recommend wearing these pills in her purse to the appearance of cramps immediately take them off. But as you know, many women are concerned the entire pregnancy severe nausea that comes from shpy may increase. Some pregnant women during an attack of nausea can not drink a sip of water, not like a pill. But enter a rectal suppository every woman can afford and that will bring her relief.

But applied papaverine should only be prescribed by a doctor with all the indications and contraindications - the drug is still not entirely safe and in overdose or incorrect use can have side effects.


How does papaverine during pregnancy

Action papaverine during pregnancy consists of suppressing the spasms of smooth muscles of the uterus (hyper) and improve circulation in the walls of the uterus and the placenta. This leads to an improvement in fetoplacental circulation and promotes normal growth and development of the fetus.

In addition, papaverine helps to suppress excitation processes in the brain, which also has a positive impact on women. Against the background of papaverine woman becomes calmer, better sleep, she reduced or are entirely fears, including the fear of childbirth. All this has a beneficial effect on the child's condition.


Negative impact

If papaverine used by a physician in therapeutic doses, its side effects would be minimized. The most unpleasant side effects, in this case may be strengthening constipation due to suppression of intestinal motility and heartburn because of too much relaxation of the circular locking muscle, located on the border between the esophagus and the stomach. But a side effect would any other antispasmodic, including Nospanum.

For the application of papaverine during pregnancy, there are absolute contraindications, if they do not comply, the side effects can be very powerful. So, papaverine should not be taken at the heart block, increased intraocular pressure, renal dysfunction, adrenal and thyroid glands The thyroid gland - is responsible for your hormones  The thyroid gland - is responsible for your hormones
 And if you are hypersensitive to the components of the drug. With great care papaverine is prescribed for reducing kidney function, especially during pregnancy, when kidneys are working with double load.
