The Use Of Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)?
I ran out of fam surgery, and was given 6 tablets of dexketrofen thrometamol 25mg, and the medicine was gone, I was told to control for another week. I was operated on April 30, 2019 and came home from the hospital on May 2, 2019, may I take the medicine for 3 more days?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, the drug dexketoprofen thrometamol is a drug from the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory group (NSAID) given to treat pain. According to its function, this medicine is given for you to treat post-operative pain. Actually, if you don't feel pain anymore, you don't need this medicine anymore (you can stop taking it even though it hasn't finished yet).
These drugs are classified as hard drugs that you should not take without going through a doctor's examination and you should not buy without a prescription from a doctor. If indeed your doctor only prescribes only 6 tablets, then you should not buy it yourself if the drug has run out. If indeed you still feel pain after your medication runs out, then you can consume other mild pain medications that you can buy freely such as paracetamol. If your breasts are getting more painful after surgery, the scars emit odor or pus, or if the skin area around the surgical wound appears red, swollen, and painful, you should immediately go back to your doctor.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
