Paracetamol Drug Administration?
Tonight doctor, why should the baby be given paracetamol before eating?
Hello Nurhidayanti Agus, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Introduce me Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Each drug has its own dosage and method of use. It aims to optimize the function of the drug itself so that it is quickly absorbed and its effects will be quickly felt and minimize the side effects of the drug. The drug that we encounter most often is Paracetamol.
Paracetamol is a drug that works to relieve fever and has an anti-pain effect. The formation of this drug itself is diverse such as tablets, caplets, syrups, drops, infusions, and suppositories (via the anus). The dosage also varies according to the age and weight of the patient. In the use of paracetamol, there are a number of things to consider such as:
There is kidney disease or liver. Previous Alcohol Consumption History. The use of certain drugs such as Tuberculosis drugs, blood thinners. In how to use it, paracetamol can be given before / after meals because the metabolism of this drug is not influenced by food or drink. However, it should be noted if paracetamol is taken together with other drugs, which is feared will affect the performance of one drug. Such as the use of blood-thinning drugs, anti-seizure drugs, nausea drugs.
Excessive use of paracetamol can cause side effects such as itchy skin rashes, sore throat, mouth sores, sore pains, weakness, yellowed skin, cloudy urine, black stool.
What you can do now is:
Use the paracetamol medication according to doctor's recommendations and recommendations. Evaluate when using these drugs, whether there are side effects. If complaints still exist / fever is still present in more than 3 days, immediately consult your doctor again. That's all the answers from me, hopefully always healthy
Thank you :)
