Can Consumption Of Lime Juice While Consuming Some Type Of Medicine?
Good Morning Doctor, I regularly consume crestor, concor and cardio aspirin day and night. May I drink lime juice every morning?
Thank you for the question.
The medicines you mentioned have a variety of functions, which are:
Anticholesterolemia (Crestor containing rosuvastatin) Antihypertensive (Concor containing bisoprolol) Anti pain and anti blood clotting (Cardio aspirin containing acetylsalicylic acid) The above medicines are often doctors prescribed to patients with high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, also at risk or have experienced problems with blood clots, such as in patients with heart disease and ischemic stroke.
In general, consuming lime juice in the morning in people who are day and night consuming these drugs is not dangerous. According to some literature, consuming lime does have a high antioxidant potential, so that it can help reduce inflammation, as well as neutralize cholesterol levels in the blood, nourish the heart's work, also prevent narrowing of blood vessels.
It's just that, in people who are sensitive, consumption of lime juice often also triggers an increase in stomach acid, causing various complaints such as nausea, vomiting, bloating, heartburn, tightness, and many other complaints. Therefore, if you have a history of problems with increased gastric acid, before consuming lime juice, it's good to check yourself first with your doctor or internist. Even safer, if you do not consume lime juice on an empty stomach in order to minimize the risks above.
Hope this helps ...
