Numerous drugs have the ability to pass through the placental barrier to reach the fetus during pregnancy, potentially leading to toxicities. The same phenomenon occurs when a woman breast-feeds her child with drugs that pass from the mother’s blood into her milk.
You (or your wife, this app is not restricted to women !) are pregnant or breast-feeding your baby ? You have a headache, cramps, digestive disorders, or a medical prescription for any chronic disease and you wonder which drugs you can take and which you must not ? With this app, you will be able to know what to do, which drugs to take and which you must avoid because they may be toxic to your baby. After the welcome screen, simply touch “Check your drugs”, then type in the first letters of the drug, and you get direct information on whether it is OK for you to take the drug (“O”) or you NO, you should not take it (N), depending on the trimester of pregnancy.
This app gathered informations on more than 500 different drugs and has been developed by pharmacists and physicians on the basis of scientific and medical data retrieved from the international literature.
