Safe Cold Medicine For Diabetics?
Good evening, I want to ask I have type 2 diabetes mellitus and now I have a cold and cough with inflammation. Then the husband bought paratusin as medicine. When I read, there were contra indications of “sufferers with heart problems and diabetes mellitus.” Do you think it’s safe or not if I take Paratusin?
Thank you for the question.
Colds, coughs, and discomfort in the throat are most often caused by rhinitis (inflammation of the nasal cavity), sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses), and pharyngitis (inflammation of the throat). The trigger for these conditions can be due to allergies, irritation, as well as viral and bacterial infections. Other factors, such as excessive vocal cord stretching, nasal polyps, nasopharyngeal cancer, gastric acid reflux, bronchitis, etc. can also cause complaints like you experience. Before going to the doctor, you should not take drugs carelessly, especially those not over-the-counter drugs as you mentioned. If a new complaint occurs 1-3 days, you can first do the following steps to resolve it:
Drink more warm water Do not consume fried foods, spicy foods, cold drinks and artificial sweetness Limit screaming too loudly Use masks Do not contact with air conditioning, fans, pollution, smoke, dust, animal hair, and other substances that are prone to making the airways resting more rest The medication you mentioned has a composition of utamanoscapine, chlorpheniramine maleate, glyceryl guaiacolate, paracetamol, and phenylpropanolamine HCl. Judging from the womb, this drug can indeed help alleviate your complaints. It's just true that you mentioned, the use of this drug in diabetics, especially those whose blood sugar levels are not controlled, is not recommended. Therefore, as mentioned above, you should not take any medicine. If you have made the above efforts and complaints have not improved, it is safer for you to check yourself directly to the doctor, ENT doctor, or doctor of internal medicine to be treated further according to the cause huh ..
I hope this helps.
