Long-term Medicinal Use For Hemorrhoids?
I have stage 3 internal hemorrhoids, after seeing a doctor. The doctor asked me to take Dios tablets for 2 consecutive months at a dose of 2×1 per day. What I want to ask is whether the drug is safe and there are no side effects if it is consumed for a long time? then compared to the Ardium medicine, is Dios safer?
Hello, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Dios is a drug that contains 450 mg of Diosmin and 50 mg of Hesperidin. Both types of content are safe to use for up to 6 months. So using it for 2 months is safe to do. The most common side effects are digestive disorders such as abdominal pain and diarrhea, as well as headaches.
Ardium basically has the same content as Dios (citrus bioflavonoid which is equivalent to Diosmin 450 mg and Hesperidin 50 mg), so they both have the same level of safety and effectiveness. It is safe to take ibuprofen along with this drug as long as you follow the instructions for using the drug given by your doctor. Side effects that are often found with ibuprofen use are abdominal pain, burning chest, nausea and vomiting, bloating, diarrhea or constipation, headaches and dizziness, and can cause a rash on the skin accompanied by itching. As long as you follow the instructions for taking the medicine given, the possibility of side effects can be minimized.
Other conventional therapies that can be used to treat hemorrhoids include:
Overcome your constipation by increasing the consumption of fibrous foods (vegetables and fruit at least 5 servings a day), consuming complex carbohydrates (such as brown rice, brown rice, oatmeal), drinking lots of water (at least 2-3 liters a day), increasing physical activity and avoid sitting too long
Reduce consumption of meat, fatty foods, and sugar
Cut down on alcohol and caffeine consumption
Don't hold back the urge to have a bowel movement
Use a stool softener or laxative such as lactulose or magnesium salt (English salt) if the stool is hard and difficult to pass
You can soak your anus in warm water for 10-15 minutes 2-3 times a day (this is called a sitz bath)
If your hemorrhoids are very swollen and inflamed, you can apply ice or cold compresses for the first 2-3 days.
