JArak Take Medication For Cervical Spondylosis And Consume Olive Oil?
Good evening, I have a few questions to ask: u003cbr u003e1. I am currently still in the process of being treated for Mild cervical spondylosis by taking Riklona. As for what I ask is, can I take the Caviplex supplement during the fasting month of Ramadan, so that I can keep my stamina and the healing process smoothly? Because I forgot to ask the specialist about this when I last checked, but I am allowed to fast in Ramadan. U003cbr u003e2. Is olive oil taken orally / drinking good for health and healing? Is there a time lag between drinking olive oil and medicine? U003cbr u003e That’s my question, thank you.
Good evening Tri,
Thank you for the question.
Riklona contains clonazepam which functions as a muscle relaxant and also for anti-anxiety. Caviplex contains multivitamins and minerals that are good for the body. Same is the case with other multivitamin drugs. Both should be consumed after eating.
Olive oil is usually used in the beauty sector and as a food dressing. Various studies have shown that ingested olive oil reduces the risk of heart disease and also lowers cholesterol levels. But what is used here is extra-virgin olive oil which uses olives that are fresh and perfectly shaped. If you want to consume olive oil, you should pay attention to whether it is extra-virgin or not.
As for what I can suggest for cervical spondylitis:
Get regular exercise
avoid looking up and looking down for too long
Use a chair with neck support when sitting
Avoid twisting of the neck
If the pain is very painful, you can use drugs such as paracetamol, ibuprofen, and meloxicam
Consult a neurologist if your complaint is not getting better or is getting worse. Getting worse is meant:
Tingling hands and feet
Limp hands and feet
Unable to hold back urination and bowel movements
That's my explanation, hopefully it can help answer the question. More information can also be found in Cervical spondylosis
