Muscle Pain Medicine For People With Stomach Acid?
I just bought Aspilet because I’ve been feeling muscle pain for 3 days. After I read it again carefully, there are contraindications for people with gastric ulcers (ulcer). Is there a similar drug that is safe for ulcer sufferers?
Hello good morning Siti..
Aspirin or acetylsalicylate is a drug that functions as an analgesic (pain reliever), and anti-inflammatory (anti-inflammatory) which at certain doses can be anti-platelet aggregation / anti-platelet (inhibit blood clotting or as a blood thinner) so that it can be useful for certain conditions. heart disease, peripheral arterial disease, stroke, and in patients who have recently undergone heart and blood vessel surgery. Regarding your question regarding the contraindications of aspirin in patients with gastric ulcers, it is true. Gastric ulcer is a condition where there is an injury to the stomach wall due to erosion of the stomach wall, in severe cases this condition can cause bleeding. Therefore, the use of aspirin will trigger bleeding conditions or worsen bleeding conditions (because of its blood thinning function). It should be noted that aspirin is not an over-the-counter drug, in other words its administration must be based on a doctor's prescription based on the results of extracting complaints and direct examination. Other contraindications are women who are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, and breastfeeding, have a previous history of allergy to aspirin, have a blood clotting disorder such as hemophilia, are taking certain drugs, are experiencing bleeding (eg in the reproductive system), and so on.
It is recommended that you check with your doctor first to find out the cause of the muscle pain you are experiencing and the appropriate treatment. It should be noted that doctors give medicines not only to cure the disease, but also to cure the patient as a whole, in the sense that the doctor must also consider the special conditions possessed by the patient, that is why a doctor's examination is very important and you should avoid buying drugs without doctor's prescription (except over-the-counter drugs). While waiting for an appointment with your doctor, you can take over-the-counter medications such as paracetamol to relieve pain. In addition, you can apply warm compresses to the sore muscles to help relieve pain. Paracetamol is a drug that is relatively safe for consumption in patients who have a history of gastritis (ulcer).
That's all, hope it helps you understand :)
