The Main Food Is A Substitute For Rice For Taking Medicine?
Hello, I want to ask Reza. Right now I am taking medicine from a doctor (medicine after eating), only lately I lack the appetite for rice. Are there alternatives to rice that I can eat to outsmart it (like potatoes, etc.)? Because I think whether I should always eat rice before taking medicine from the doctor.
Thank you for the question.
Drugs can be taken in different ways depending on the characteristics of the drug. Some drugs are recommended for consumption after eating for various reasons, for example because it is more optimal for consumption if taken with food, because of its potential to increase stomach acid when consumed on an empty stomach, and so on. The doctor who prescribed the drug to you, with his competence and experience, certainly has considered this well before giving the medicine and determining the rules for taking the drug.
Not always, the recommended drug is consumed after eating, you should consume it after eating rice. Various other types of food you can also consume before consuming this medicine, for example bread, cakes, potatoes, cassava, meat, eggs, fish, and so on. Provided that you have no complaints after consuming these foods, this action does not seem to be dangerous.
However, without knowing exactly what drug you are referring to, of course we are not authorized to explain in detail the correct consumption procedures. Therefore, ideally, you directly ask your concern to the doctor who is prescribing the drug to you.
I hope this helps.
