Nausea And Chest Pain After Taking OAT?
amualaikum. I am Muhammad Safri 19 years old. Last Tuesday I was diagnosed with TB, I was given OAT, I have taken tetratur but since taking the medicine I don’t even have an appetite, I often have chest pain, weakness, nausea, very different when I haven’t taken the medicine. what is the effect of the drug? thanks……
What you are experiencing may be related to the side effects of Anti Tuberculosis Drugs (OAT). However, it can also be related to gastric complaints triggered by how to take OAT which is required to be taken before eating. How to take OAT before eating is done to ensure that all antibiotics can be absorbed by the digestive tract and work properly.
You should immediately consult again with the doctor. Your doctor may need to add anti-nausea medication or medication to relieve your stomach symptoms.
You must continue to take OAT according to the last recommendation suggested by the doctor until you can return to control. Take OAT at the same time every day. Discipline in consuming OAT is very important because it is related to the resistance of bacteria that cause TB that can occur when taking OAT carelessly. The resistance of the bacteria that causes TB will result in you needing more complicated treatment.
Try drinking warm ginger water or ginger candy half an hour after taking OAT. Ginger and warm water can help treat/reduce nausea. Give yourself a break of 15 to 30 minutes before you start eating breakfast. If breakfast with rice and side dishes makes your stomach uncomfortable, you may choose other types of breakfast, such as green bean porridge, bread with jam/boiled egg/omelet, ripe fruit (not sour), cakes or rice porridge. with shredded boiled chicken.
During the day to night, try to eat small portions of food but often, the distance between meals is attempted to be less than 3 hours. You don't have to eat a full meal, but it can be a healthy snack like vegetables & fruit.
Avoid foods & drinks that often trigger your digestive disorders such as chocolate, tea, coffee, alcoholic beverages, spicy foods, acidic and fizzy foods/drinks, cabbage, broccoli and cabbage.
