Can you use Capsinol while you are pregnant?
We cannot answer this question in concrete terms, unfortunately. Capsinol 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 are in themselves harmful to 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. 😉)
Capsinol 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 xylometazoline-based nasal sprays (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.
