Side Effects If Overdosing On Medication For The Stomach?
In the afternoon, I want to ask, my husband was sick with typhus symptoms and one of the medicines given by the doctor was omeprazole, my husband took 3 times a day for 2 days in a row, when on the 2nd day I just noticed that the drug should be taken 1 time a day … it was I wonder how ? dangerous? Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically Omeprazole is a drug that has a safe enough high dose range. In certain diseases, omeprazole can be taken up to a dose of 360mg per day. The usual dose of omeprazole given to treat the symptoms of normal stomach disease is 20-40 mg taken once a day. If indeed your husband accidentally consumes up to 3 times, most likely there will not be a certain toxicity effect that will occur, but consumption exceeds the recommended dose is still not recommended. For now there is nothing you and your husband need to do because there is also a big possibility that nothing will happen to your husband, but make sure you and your husband will read the rules for taking medicine more carefully.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
