My grandmother is 70 years old, has dysentery, went to the doctor and was given a prescription, one day it was pretty good, but until now I haven’t had a bowel movement, why? Is it dangerous? What medicine is suitable?

1 Answer:

Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The digestive system and drug metabolism in the elderly have often decreased, so that for some drugs, the effects given are actually different in the sense of decreasing, increasing, shortening or even prolonging. This is also influenced by the dose given, lifestyle, and how to take the drug.

In the case of your grandmother, if you follow a good diet, or there is no decrease in appetite, then if after 3-4 days your grandmother has not had a bowel movement, then check with your grandmother to the doctor because she may need help with laxatives or digestive aids.

Meanwhile, what can be done at home is to drink more water, increase consumption of fruits and vegetables, maintain solid food intake, use squat toilets, avoid consumption of tea and coffee, and increase light physical activity such as walking. I hope you and your family are always healthy.

That's all, hope it helps.
