Distance Of Taking Gastric Medication With Medication For Epilepsy?
may you take antacid medicine doen, then take the drug phenytoin sodium, or there must be a time interval of a few hours in taking both
Good evening, thanks for the question
Antacids are drugs to neutralize excessive stomach acid. While phenytoin is an anti-convulsant type drug that is useful as a long-term treatment for epilepsy cases. Antacids are known to reduce the concentration of phenytoin in the blood if taken together. Therefore you should consume these two types of drugs by giving distance. For example, antacids are consumed 1/2 hour before meals, while phenytoin is only consumed after eating about 1/2 1/2 hours later. Fenitoi can cause side effects on various organ systems, with major side effects on the central nervous system such as headaches, dizziness, or vertigo. If you experience these complaints you should immediately consult a doctor.
Sekia, hopefully can help
