Impact Of Fruit Consumption After Taking Medicine?
Good afternoon, after I took Paracetamol, after that I ate mango and papaya, what was the impact for me to eat both fruits after taking Paracetamol?
Thank you for the question.
Paracetamol (acetaminophen) is an analgesic and antipyretic drug that can help relieve pain and fever. This drug can produce these effects by reducing the production of inflammatory substances, called prostaglandins. Apart from taking oral medication (tablets, caplets, syrups and drops), these drugs are also available in the form of infusions and suppositories.
Paracetamol drug consumption is actually not influenced by food. This drug is relatively safe to consume before or after eating. Therefore, it does not matter if you consume mango and papaya after taking paracetamol. However, excessive consumption of fruit in a time very close to the consumption of the drug paracetamol should no longer be done to avoid potential negative interactions between them. Therefore, next time, you should give a break of 1-2 hours if you want to consume the fruit before or after taking the medicine, ok?
I hope this helps.
