A Combination Of Drugs For Chickenpox?
Hello, I want to ask, recently I was exposed to chickenpox, but the only medicine I have is acyclovir, cetirizine hcl with paracetamol, can the three drugs be taken simultaneously, then what is the dose for my dose to take this medicine?
Hello Agung, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Acyclovir is a drug that belongs to the class of antiviral drugs, where this drug is indeed effective when used in herpes virus infections and chickenpox virus. This drug is routinely given to the chickenpox virus infection, especially in the early days of the infection because this drug will be very effective at work when used in the early days.
Cetirizine HCl drug is a drug that is included in the antihistamine drug, where this drug serves to inhibit histamine, which is one of the chemical compounds produced by the body when itching or allergic reactions occur. This medicine is generally given to chickenpox patients to help reduce the itchy complaints that can accompany when the wound is dry so that it reduces the feeling of scratching the patient so that the scar does not get worse.
Whereas Paracetamol is commonly given to people with cacra to help relieve fever that may accompany during infection. If the fever is not felt, this drug may generally not be used during the healing period of chickenpox infection.
All three of these drugs themselves are possible to be concomitantly concurrent due to the absence of drug interactions that interfere with the work of each drug, but regarding the dosage of how many times this drug must be consumed in a day, all returned to the doctor who gave the prescription to you. If the doctor does not tell you or there is no record on the medicine package, it is strongly recommended to go back to see your doctor about the rules of use because the method of use must be adjusted to how the condition of each patient when the examination is carried out.
I hope this helps.
