Drinking Medicine After Eating Fried?
Dear Sir / Ms Doctor,
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. To be properly absorbed by the body, each drug has its own rules of use. Some of them need your stomach to be empty so it must be drunk 2 hours before eating, some of them must be eaten at the same time at mealtime, some must be left under the tongue without being sucked and swallowed, and so on. Among all that, there is no one that specifically makes fried food taboo.
However, if your condition has certain stomach diseases, such as gastric acid / GERD, gastritis, stomach ulcers, and gastric ulcers, oily foods such as fried foods, spicy, acidic foods and caffeinated drinks such as coffee and tea can increase stomach acid levels and cause symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, burning chest, and sour mouth. Symptoms like these can interfere with drug absorption and cause it not to work optimally.
But if what you are worried about is that the drug interacts with the ingredients in fried foods so that they become toxic or have a bad effect on your body, then you don't need to worry because that usually doesn't happen. However, if your symptoms persist, you may need additional treatment to treat the acid reflux that you are experiencing and you should immediately consult a doctor. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
