Is amatem soft gel safe for a pregnant woman in her 2nd trimester
Amatem contains Artemether 80 mg, Lumefantrine 480 mg. Do not use during breastfeeding and pregnancy unless it is specifically recommended by a medical doctor.

Breastfeeding women should not use Artemether and Lumefantrine tablets due to the long elimination half-life of Lumefantrine (4 to 6 days). It is recommended that breastfeeding should not resume before day 28 after discontinuation of Artemether and Lumefantrine combination unless potential benefits to mother and child outweigh the risk of the combination treatment.

Please next time take such young babies to see a Paediatrician not the health centres.

In that age, not every fever is Malaria and we will not use intramuscular injections to treat malaria in such age groups
