Hello Herrys, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The medicines given to you by your school doctor have different contents and functions when compared to the type of drug you are asking.
Next I explain each of the ingredients and functions of each drug.
Solathim is one of the brands of drugs that are included in the class of antibiotics Thiamphenicol that works to kill bacteria that are suspected by your doctor to cause complaints that you feel at this time. This drug is commonly marketed with 500 mg preparations.
Dexaharsen drug is a brand of medicine that contains Dexamethasone which is a corticosteroid group and is commonly used to help relieve inflammation that is happening. This drug is generally marketed in Indonesia with 0.5 mg or 0.75 mg preparations.
Loratadine is one of the drugs included in the second group of antihistamines, which are drugs that work to help inhibit the action of histamine (a substance that is common when allergic or other infections). This drug is marketed with 10 mg preparations.
Whereas procold is a mixed drug containing 500 mg of Paracetamol, 30 mg of pseudoephedrine HCl, and 2 mg of chlorpheniramine maleate (CTM). Each drug contained in this drug has different functions, where paracetamol is intended to function as a fever-lowering, pseudoephedrine and also CTM intended to help reduce nasal obstruction that may be accompanied by sneezing. Basically it is a mixture that is in this drug aims as one of the initial choices to make it easier for someone who has early symptoms of the flu before finally seeing a doctor, therefore this drug is sold freely and does not require a doctor's prescription.
Although the content of the drug that you ask looks better than the medicine given by your doctor, but as mentioned above, the drug is only intended as the first drug that can be consumed to reduce the initial symptoms, and henceforth it is advisable for you to take medication that has been recommended by your doctor because the administration of the drug has been considered by a doctor, which means that your current condition requires the use of antibiotics and also anti-inflammatory drugs to eliminate the cause of complaints and help speed up your recovery.
But if you still want to take the drug you are asking, please consult further with the doctor who examined you at school because the doctor is more aware of your current condition, so that the doctor is more competent in assessing whether you need the medicine you need. ask whether or not.
I hope this helps.
