Can You Take Medicine After Drinking Coffee?
Good evening, I last night at 6.15 drinking coffee and I just remembered I had to take medicine:
Thank you for the question.
The drugs you mentioned have a variety of functions, namely to deal with bacterial infections (cefadroxyl), to overcome inflammation and allergies (omedeson containing dexamethasone), also to deal with fever, cough, runny nose, and itching in the respiratory tract (alpara containing paracetamol, phenylpropanolamin , chlorpheniramine maleate, and dextromethorphan).
In general, the consumption of these drugs is recommended to be taken after eating. In healthy people, the consumption of these drugs in close proximity to coffee can be harmless. However, if you have a history of problems with increased stomach acid (dyspepsia), the consumption of these drugs in close proximity to coffee can trigger stomach acid production, which can cause you to experience nausea, pain, tightness, lumps, bloating, and many other complaints . Therefore, indeed, you should, if you have finished drinking coffee, give a break at least 1-2 hours before consuming these drugs.
I hope this helps.
