Consumption Of Sweet Foods After Taking Worm Medicine?
.. can you take ALBENDAZOLE worm medicine, after an hour and then eat sweet foods like chocolate bread and others in large quantities … is the medicine effective and effective?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Albendazole is an effective anti-parasitic worm medicine used to treat diseases such as giardiasis, ascariasis, trichuriasis, filariasis, and neurocysticercosis.
Based on research, levels of these drugs in the blood are most effective when drugs are taken together with food, especially foods that contain high fat. In addition, there are no studies that show that bread consumption a few hours after consuming albendazole can have a certain effect on the drug, so you don't need to worry.
What you can do to prevent and treat this disease is:
Always keep hands and nails clean, especially before eating
Use footwear when leaving the house
Ensuring the cleanliness of food, drinks, cutlery, glasses, etc. that have the potential to infect the body
Routinely consume drugs given by doctors according to the recommended dosage and usage rules
Maintain your nutritional needs (especially iron) and fluids. Foods that are rich in iron are meat, chicken liver, beans, spinach, and others
Before taking drugs, make it a habit to always pay attention to: drug name, drug dosage, side effects, and drug expiration date
Thus, hopefully it can be useful.
