CTMobat that can overcome some allergic symptoms due to histamine. Some of the side effects that often arise due to the consumption of CTM include dizziness (staggering), headache, easy drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, constipation, dry mouth and nose, impaired vision, difficult urination, etc. Generally, these side effects are mild and will improve on their own after the consumption of CTM is stopped. for numbness in your mother's hands may be caused by the consumption of the CTM, but try to stop the drug whether the numbness is reduced or the complaint can disappear by itself, if not possible due to other causes such as:
peripheral neuropathy: damage to the peripheral nerves that can cause pins and needles accompanied by a sense of needling and a painful sensation or heat in certain body parts, such as fingers and toes. Radiculopathy: a condition in which the spinal cord is damaged or disturbed, resulting in tingling, pain, weakness, or paralysis of the part of the body that is innervated by the nerve. carpal tunnel syndrome orarpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) occurs when the nerves in the wrist are depressed or irritated. Muscle spasm: a sudden twitch that is difficult to predict. This condition can occur in any part of the muscle, including the hands. When affected by this condition, the right or left hand can experience stiffness, trembling, pain, to pins and needles. You should immediately consult a doctor if numb symptoms do not improve, so that the doctor can do a direct examination to find the cause so that the doctor can provide proper handling. You should not take drugs without a prescription or doctor's advice, because each drug has a different effect each individual and must be at the doctor's recommended dosage.
