Take Supplements While Taking Stroke Medications?
Good night, 3 days ago my father was hospitalized because he had a stroke in the left side of the body. What I want to ask is that my father is taking medicine given by the hospital, so is it okay if my father also takes supplements even though he is taking drugs?
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
In taking medicine, you must be careful. It is better to take the medicine before reading the instructions for using the medicine. Also, take medication as directed and monitored by a doctor. Including taking supplements. Because each drug will interact with other drugs when taken together. For example, drug A can increase the effect of drug B during or even decrease its effect. Of course this will disrupt the treatment process.
For that, I suggest to be able to consult with a doctor who handles stroke problems in your father. So that doctors can provide a safe supplement if consumed together with the stroke medication that has been given.
Thus, hopefully useful.
