Mixing A Child’s Immune Enhancer Supplement With Formula Milk
Hi, I’m a mother of a 3-year-old toddler. Well, because it’s really covid19 this season. So I want to give you some kind of medicine to increase the immune system for your family. Okay, for the immediate family, the tablet doesn’t matter. But the problem is with my 3-year-old child. He had difficulty drinking syrup, was forced to vomit until all the food he had previously eaten also came out. If for example the syrup (read stimuno) I mixed in the formula milk? Is it possible? Kmposition per 5ml: Phyllanthus niruri extract 25ml Additional ingredients: Sodium benzoate, methyl paraben, sorbitol liquid.

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, you need to know in advance, that herbal medicines currently consumed by many Indonesians (including herbs contained in Stimuno) which are claimed to improve the body's immune system are not yet known to prevent transmission of COVID-19 disease (meaning its effectiveness still very questionable). In addition, it is not clear whether it is safe or not to consume herbal supplements in the long run. Until now immunomodulator supplements are not recommended for consumption for more than 10-14 days.
The ingredients contained in the supplements you mentioned are also not known to have a specific interaction with milk, so if indeed you still want to give these supplements to children, you may just mix them in milk. But once again, because its effectiveness has also not been proven, actually forcing taking supplements to children is also not recommended.
If you really want to keep taking supplements to your family, then make sure to take supplements according to the dosage listed on the packaging, and do not take more than 10-14 days. In addition, make sure you keep taking the recommended steps to prevent the transmission of the virus:
Stay silent at home and not leave the house if you are not very forced to maintain a safe distance with others (minimum 1.8-2 meters) and avoid direct contact with others (such as shaking hands, kissing hands, hugging, etc.) Avoid going to crowded and crowded places people Make sure to wash your hands with soap as often as possible, or use a hand sanitizer if there is no place to wash your hands Practice proper cough and sneezing etiquette Maintain health and endurance by getting enough sleep, enough to eat, enough to drink, enough to exercise, and not smoking Masks are not recommended for use by healthy people because it is not effective at preventing large-scale transmission.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
