The Durability Of Puyer Medication For Children With Febrile Seizures?
Hello. My name is Husnul. 2 Weeks ago my child was treated for seizure heat. After returning home on November 7 back in control then given a seizure prescription medication in the form of puyer, he said to be in case if suddenly hot again. What I want to ask is, how long does the puyer medicine last? Thanks.
Good afternoon Husnul, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Medicines have many preparations. There is a tablet, capsule, syrup, ointment, powder, liquid and so on. All of this is a drug manufacturer's way of packaging the drug so that it can function properly in someone's body because each preparation has advantages and disadvantages of each.
For powder, this preparation is actually a less formal preparation than other preparations. Because there are no drug manufacturers that provide drugs in the form of powder. Puyer is made by pharmacists at the request of the doctor to provide a mixture of several drugs into one, with a lower dose than it should, and in a form that is easier to consume because children are usually easier to consume puyer than swallowing tablets or capsules.
So indeed, because it is no longer in its original form, we also can not be sure how long the expiration date of the drug. Because the drug expiration date is determined based on the best packaging and storage recommended by each drug manufacturer, not when it is in the form of powder. Plus, each drug that is mixed has a different expiration date, and it is very possible that there is a component of the drug in the powder that expires earlier than others.
Therefore the conclusion, we can not be sure how long the actual content of the drug in the powder is still good for consumption. But if you have to guess, to be safe you should not keep puyer more than 1 month, judging from the fact that after the drug packaging is opened, the drug should be consumed for 1 month. If it's been over 1 month, if your child has another febrile seizure, you should go back to the pediatrician to get a new medicine. So, hopefully answering your question.
