Take Cold Medicine And Cough After Injecting Meningitis?
Hello! I want to ask my mother just had an injection of meningitis for Umrah and at this time my mother is having stones and flu, can I take the medicine?
Hello Miftahul, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The use of cough and cold medicines that are sold freely in pharmacies will most likely not interact with the newly administered vaccine or reduce the effectiveness of the vaccine. However, if your mother buys her own medication, make sure the drug purchased is indeed a class of over-the-counter medicine (drugs with a green circle label) or limited over-the-counter drugs (drugs with a blue circle label). Do not buy drugs of hard drugs (drugs with a red circle label) because to be able to consume this class of drugs your mother must check with her doctor first. This class of drug should not be purchased without a doctor's prescription. Some types of hard drugs can also interact with the meningitis vaccine, so you should be more careful if you want to use.
If you are not sure about the medicine you want to give to your mother, you should consult directly with your doctor so that you can see with certainty the contents of these drugs and check their interactions with the meningitis vaccine given.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
