Good evening, I asked if drinking activated carbon (norit) when diarrhea is safe? Are there any side effects? thank you

1 Answer:

Hello Alexandro,


Norit contains activated carbon. This substance is useful for absorbing toxins in the digestive tract, for example in conditions of diarrhea and flatulence. In addition to absorbing toxins, this substance can also facilitate the process of removing waste in the digestive tract.


The drug is the same as any other drug that has side effects. Some of the side effects of these drugs include vomiting, diarrhea, low platelets, decreased blood pressure, decreased potassium, decreased blood sugar levels, and black stool. Not all side effects will be experienced by everyone. It could be that people who take the drug experience no side effects at all, it could be that other people experience more severe side effects.


Therefore, you should take the drug on the doctor's recommendation. If you experience diarrhea, it is better for you to check with your doctor first so that you can be further examined and given maximum treatment.


Meanwhile, when you have diarrhea, you should increase your fluid intake by drinking water, avoiding caffeine and soda, and consuming foods that are easy to digest. It is also recommended to be diligent in washing your hands before and after defecating and before and after eating.


Hope this helps,


Thank you
