Take Several Medications At The Same Time During Menstruation
I want to ask. I’m still menstruating, can I take the medicine Fenamin 500, Carbidu 0.5, Coparcetin …? Trmaksih …
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, for what reasons do you want to consume the drug? Is the consumption prescribed directly by a doctor?
The three drugs that you mentioned have different content and functions, some are useful in relieving pain (phenamine, which contains mefenamic acid), minimizing inflammation (carbidu, containing dexamethasone), and treating fever, coughing, and colds (coparcetin, which contains paracetamol, glyceryl guaikolat, ephedrine-HCl).
If indeed there are medical indications that require it, no problem taking these drugs while menstruating. However, you need to pay attention to the recommended treatment according to doctor's advice. Because, in some rare cases, excessive consumption of mefenamic acid has the risk of causing blood clotting disorders, thereby making menstrual bleeding more and more prolonged. Consumption of dexamethasone if done long term can also disrupt hormone balance, causing menstrual cycles to be disrupted.
Therefore, considering that these three drugs do not belong to the class of over-the-counter drugs, you are only right to take them if indeed they are prescribed directly by your doctor.
I hope this helps.
