How Long Does It Take To Take A Cold Medicine After Drinking Alcohol?
In the morning I want to ask, right? I last night until early morning after drinking alcohol and I have a fever and flu. How long can I take medicine again? And what kind of medicine should be consumed?
Hello Harun Reeza Nugroho, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Alcohol is in the bloodstream for up to 24 hours. Almost all fever-lowering drugs (paracetamol, ibuprofen, aspirin) can interact with alcohol (ethanol) and have negative effects (such as paracetamol + alcohol will increase the risk of liver damage, ibuprofen / aspirin + alcohol increases the risk of stomach bleeding). The content of the average cold medicine also interacts negatively with alcohol (such as CTM / brompheniramin / dextromethorphan increases drowsiness, loss of concentration and difficulty in coordination). Because there are so many drugs that can give a negative interaction with alcohol, it is advisable not to take these drugs before at least 24 hours. For a while drink plenty of warm mineral water (at least 2 liters per day) and can be helped compress with a warm towel to reduce fever, eat regularly, take vitamin C to increase endurance.
