Is It Okay To Take Leprosy Medicine Without Using Warm Water?
Hello, I want to ask, is it okay to take leprosy medicine without using warm water? and can you drink it after eating?
In patients with leprosy, treatment is given according to the diagnosis and type of leprosy they have. For popeibacillary or multibacillary leprosy types, on the first day of every month, the national leprosy treatment standard states that drugs are taken directly in front of health workers who give the medicine and should be taken on an empty stomach or 2 hours after eating. For the next day the second onwards the drug is taken together with food.
However, you can discuss directly with the doctor who treats you regarding the drugs you are taking for this leprosy treatment. The doctor will give you advice and explain how to take the medicine for you.
For now, for medicines that you take home, you can take the medicine with meals or finish eating straight away. You can use warm water or plain water to take medicine. Furthermore, when you are under control, you can ask the doctor in detail regarding how to take this medicine.
That is the information we can convey, also read the national management of leprosy.
