Can You Take Puyer Medicine Mixed With Syrup Or Sweet Tea?
Good evening. Do you want to ask if the medicine is mixed with syrup / sweet tea? Or may the powder be mixed with sanmol in 1 measuring spoon Because my child has chickenpox in the form of antiviral medication and I have difficulty in giving the medicine. water with a glass but still the child does not want it. My child is only 3 years old
Hello Taufik, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Any puyer drugs, including antiviral drugs are not recommended to be dissolved or taken together with sweet tea because tea can interact with these drugs so that it interferes with the work of the drug and cannot provide optimal effects.
However, if you want to mix it with syrup, it's still permissible because the syrup only acts as a sweet flavor enhancer. In addition to syrup, you can also use honey to help reduce the bitter taste that is in the medicine.
Even though it has been mixed, it is still recommended to be helped to swallow by using water only, not recommended by using tea.
I hope this helps.
