Malaria in Pregnancy Hello, I'm almost 19weeks pregnant, was feeling sick few days back and I ran a culture test and it showed I have malaria. My doctor prescribed lonart DS. Is it really safe for 2nd trimester? I'm really worried
Only when necessary. This Lonart DS has known to cause or suspected to cause harmful effects on the developing fetus, thus not recommended for use in pregnant. Use Lonart DS only if the potential benefit outweighs the potential risk to the fetus when prescribed by your doctor but pls ask questions.
Lonart DS 80mg/480mg Tablet is considered to be harmful for women in their first trimester of pregnancy. The reason being, it increases the chances of fetal loss.
