5 doctor’s tips for better use of all types of tablets
Often, some people feel better after taking pills even though they do not have a specific disease (or symptoms of a disease). It has also been observed that physically active people drink less medicine and suffer less for a longer period of time. Biologists say that taking more than 3 drugs at the same time causes destructive chemical reactions in the body, while the load on the kidneys and liver increases. The probability of a counter-effect is 10 times higher.
Acetylsalicylic acid with preparations containing caffeine forms toxic substances. Vitamin D is destroyed in the body if this tablet is taken at the same time as tranquilizers and sleeping pills.
The combination of medicines with supplements and medicinal herbs is not harmless either. Let’s say St. John’s wort reduces the effect of contraceptives.
Severe allergic reactions occur due to the simultaneous use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and sulfanilamide.
Long-term use of antispasmodics with blood pressure lowering drugs can cause problems with digestion (defecation).
5 tips (important moments) that doctors advise patients:
- Tell the doctors what medicines you use when you visit doctors/medical specialists. Consult a doctor about the use of medicinal herbs (before first use).
- Take the medicine at an interval of no less than 15 minutes if the doctor prescribes several medicines at the same time (never take the medicine by hand).
- Drink the medicine with a glass of boiled water at room temperature. Medicines should not be taken with cold or hot water, nor with coffee and tea.
- Follow the instructions on taking medication before and after meals.
- During the process of medical therapy (treatment), no alcohol comes into play.
