Drug Use Rules?
Good morning, I am Nurul Nuraini, who is 21 years old. I want to ask, I have stomach pain and can take 5 tablets + 1 syrup. Before eating, drink gastrucid syrup, after I pause 1 hour to eat after eating, I pause 1 hour also directly take medicine tablets. Medication there are tablets that are 2×1 and 3×1 if 2×1 is morning u0026amp; night lalo 3×1 is morning, afternoon, evening. The question is the distance between eating and continuing to take morning medicine with the distance for taking syrup (during the day) how many hours? Explanation please
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The dosage of the drug and the rules of taking the medication given by the doctor have the aim to achieve the target therapeutic dose within the treatment period. Because each type of drug has a different length of service, different half-lives, and different concentrations in the body, depending on the patient's body weight, each type of drug has its own usage rules.
For example on drugs given 2 times per day, this shows, the dose of drug in one day is divided into two times, with a difference of 12 hours for other drugs.
By following the rules of taking medication in accordance with the rules given by the doctor, it is expected to prevent the risk of side effects from the drugs given, either in the form of side effects of nausea, stomach ache, vomiting, headaches, or maybe palpitations. Other side effects can be in the form of drugs taken to eliminate the benefits of each other, if not taken according to doctor's rules, so that the treatment goals of the drugs given are not achieved.
In connection with your question, in theory, you should take syrup medicine 8 hours after you took the syrup before. However, because your doctor provides information that this drug can be taken before meals, you can take syrup medicine at noon 1 hour before you eat. Thus, you can schedule your meal as usual, because this is to adjust to your habits, and your syrup is 1 hour before your meal schedule. So that you no longer count the distance of the tablets you take 1 hour after breakfast to when you take syrup medicine in the afternoon.
So according to your doctor's advice, if your lunch schedule at 13.00 then you can start drinking syrup at 12.00, as well as dinner. So you are not confused in taking the medicine you get.
However, if you are still in doubt and worry, then you can consult directly with the doctor who treats you, thus information relating to taking medication can be well received.
Thus the info we can convey.
