Can The Use Of The Drug Methylprednisolone Be Accompanied By Smoking?
Assalamu a’laikum, I want to ask, can you use methylprednisolone with smoking? Thank you
Hello, Rizal Mantovani. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com.
Methylprednisolone is an anti-inflammatory drug that works by affecting the immune system and reducing inflammatory reactions. Meanwhile, nephrotic syndrome is a kidney disorder which results in many proteins being excreted through urine, and this disease can be related to problems in the immune system. Therefore, anti-inflammatory drugs are one part of handling nephrotic syndrome.
Considering that in patients with nephrotic syndrome hypertension (high blood pressure) can occur due to kidney disorders, and smoking is also associated with hypertension, it is strongly recommended not to smoke for nephrotic syndrome patients despite receiving methylprednisolone therapy. In addition, the advice to stop smoking is very important to be followed by the general public.
Do not hesitate to consult with a doctor who handles your illness. To enrich insight, you can read articles about methylprednisolone.
