And how do I treat my complaints doc, when these symptoms appear I immediately stop taking over-the-counter medicines, on the other hand also my weight is not ideal doc / overweight, thank you doc
Hello Nico, Thank you for the question.
Paracetamol and caffeine are drugs that are mainly used to treat pain. If you use this medicine according to the dosage shown on the medicine package, then you don't need to worry about the effect on the liver and kidneys. Drug overdose occurs if you take drugs in large doses at once that are not in accordance with the recommendations on the drug packaging or doctor's recommendation.
Need to know further whether you experience pain during urinating, difficult to hold urinating, feeling incomplete after urinating, or fever. The symptoms that you experience can be caused by:
urinary tract infection
urinary tract stones
prostatitis, or inflammation of the prostate gland
If the symptoms have been going on for several days, you should immediately consult with the nearest general practitioner so that the doctor can carry out further examinations including urine and ultrasound to determine the reason so that proper treatment can be given. In the meantime, please do the following:
multiply water consumption
avoid the habit of holding BAK
paracetamol consumption according to the rules of use on the packaging of drugs to deal with fever
Hopefully this information helps you.
