Can you use Capnasal when you are pregnant?

nasal spray in pregnancy

We cannot answer this question in concrete terms, unfortunately. Capnasal has not been medically tested and therefore we cannot comment on this.

What we can say; the Original Formula and Extra Strong do not contain any ingredients that in themselves are harmful to a pregnancy.

We do not recommend the Mild formula during pregnancy. This is because it contains feverfew (feverfew) as an extra ingredient. This substance has a slightly blood-thinning effect and could possibly induce labor.
The amount of feverfew is so low that we do not expect it to help as a wee inducer.
(Should that need arise at the end of the pregnancy. ­čśë)

Capnasal during breastfeeding

Both formulas can be used normally during breastfeeding.


When in doubt: If in doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

We wish you a pleasant and carefree pregnancy!

 


Ps. Standard nasal sprays based on xylometazoline (such as Otrivin and Kruidvat, Etos, etc.) are not good for the unborn child in the first trimester. Saline solution may be less effective, but it is a healthy alternative during this time.
