Herbal Medicine For Patients With Nerve, Kidney, High Blood Pressure
Best wishes. Doc, I want to ask. I still have a stock of two bottles of herbal medicine (Black Seed / Nigella sativa semen / black cumin and Bidara leaf / Zizipus mauritania folium). Can I go to my mother after drinking Nephrisol milk (milk for kidneys) or not? Sorry I asked here, instead of asking my mother’s doctor because the rampant virus made it impossible to control the hospital scr routine (the condition of the mother was paralyzed due to nerves since des’19) These are my mother’s medicines if it can help to answer = clopidogrel bisulfate, folavit, brainact citicoline, irbesartan, and bicnat. Thank you in advance doc.
Hello Nabila, Thank you for the question.
Herbal medicine is indeed one of the medicines that are widely used by Indonesian people. Although made from natural ingredients, but that does not mean this drug does not have certain side effects and is considered completely safe. Basically, herbal medicines are safe as long as they are registered with BPOM. BPOM will conduct a series of clinical trials to find out whether the ingredients in this drug are safe to use. In addition to making sure the product is registered with BPOM, another important thing to do is pay attention to the product's expiration date and follow the instructions for its use on the product or consult with your doctor first. However, not everyone can take herbal medicine. For certain groups of people, you should avoid using herbal medicines, for example pregnant women, nursing mothers, people who have certain disease conditions, and people who are taking certain drugs. Because your mother has a stroke, high blood pressure, and kidney disease, you should not use herbal medicines because these drugs can affect your mother's condition. In addition, these drugs can also interact with drugs given by doctors. Please advise your mother to take medication recommended by doctors and follow the advice of other doctors. If you really have to control because the drug has run out, then one family member can try to consult with a doctor to ask for a new prescription. If there are complaints of shortness of breath, chest pain that is burdensome, and difficult to urinate, do not hesitate to immediately go to the nearest emergency room huh.
I hope this helps.
