What is Birth Injury Medication?
Birth injuries can run the gamut from mild to severe and from temporary to permanent. Depending on the birth injury your child endured, they may be prescribed a plethora of birth injury medications. Some birth injury medication will treat and alleviate symptoms while others will control seizures and other muscle spasms. Some birth injury medication your child might be prescribed include:
- Pain and fever relief medications like acetaminophen, ibuprofen, ketorolac, and diclofenac
- Nausea relief medications like promethazine, prochlorperazine, metoclopramide, and ondansetron
- Cerebral palsy-related medications like antiplatelet drugs and anticoagulants
- Seizure control medications like valproate, levetiracetam, lorazepam, and phenytoin
Birth injury medications vary greatly from patient to patient and in accordance with each patient’s symptoms. Only a physician or medical specialist can correctly prescribe the medication your child needs to treat their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
