SLE or Systemic Lupus Erythematosus is inflammation caused by an autoimmune disease that attacks the patient's own tissues or organs. So that this disease can attack the skin, lungs, joints, brain, or heart with all the implications. SLE itself is part of several types of lupus disease; besides SLE, there are also types of cutaneous lupus, lupus triggered by drugs, lupus in newborns.
Symptoms that are often encountered by patients can be in the form of skin rashes, joint pain, hypertension, recurrent canker sores, recurrent fever, inflammation and fatigue.
In connection with your question, in certain conditions, a patient with SLE may have experienced complaints of pain, whether in the form of coughing, fever, or pain in digestion. So that for the initial stages of treatment, sometimes it requires treatment with drugs that are sold freely in drug stores or pharmacies, so there is no harm in getting the initial treatment according to the instructions of the treating doctor.
In general, if SLE patients experience complaints of fever, cough, or other illness; taking over-the-counter medicines is still safe to administer, such as paracetamol, over-the-counter cough tablets, or over-the-counter cold medicines. However, it is necessary to continue evaluating the patient's condition during illness and taking medicine, in a sense, if within 1-2 days the complaint has not improved, then the patient should immediately consult a family doctor or doctor who treats him, so that the doctor can immediately provide safe treatment for patients and is not expected to trigger this SLE complaint.
Some types of drugs that need to be avoided for SLE patients are PPI, anti-epileptic drugs, some anti-high blood pressure drugs, some non-steroidal anti-pain medications, isoniazid, methyldopa, and some drugs that require a doctor's prescription to get it. In general, paracetamol can be purchased at drug stores or pharmacies without a doctor's prescription and is safe to use for patients with SLE.
However, all this is necessary for you to discuss and consult directly with the doctor who treats your husband. Thus, your doctor can provide notes relating to the types of drugs that can be consumed and the types of drugs that are avoided.
Thus the info we can convey.
