Can You Take Medicine Tablets With The Help Of Eating Chocolate Biscuits?
Hello, I want to ask. I am a person who cannot take medicine using water, usually I take medicine using rice or bread. Nahh in the morning I ran out of rice and found chocolate biscuits so I just used it to take medicine. Oh yes, the one I drink is panadol paracetamol. This won’t have any effect, right? Because after I see it on the web we can’t eat chocolate after taking medicine. That’s all my question, thank you
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Each drug has its own pharmacological profile which is a reference in determining recommendations for taking medication. For example, some drugs are more effectively absorbed by the body when the stomach is not filled with food.
Specifically for paracetamol, a systematic review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology shows that the actual use of paracetamol with food does not cause a significant difference in bioavailability (blood drug levels) compared to its consumption in fasting / empty stomach / without food. However, it is reported that food does slow the absorption of paracetamol. This can extend the time needed to reach the maximum concentration of the drug in the blood plasma so that it can slow the achievement of the expected therapeutic effect. However, in general this has no harmful effects.
If you are unsure about how to use over-the-counter medicines, you can read the instructions for use on the drug packaging or visit your doctor so you can get the right medicine and clear instructions for use. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
