Use Of Drugs Containing Earthworms For Ulcer Sufferers?
Hello I am yohana … r ndok sorry I want to ask can typhoid worms be taken by people with ulcers? How many times a day? And if you can’t, please give a little explanation, yes, thank you …
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The medicine that you mentioned is quite often used as a traditional medicine in Indonesia, especially for the treatment of typhus. This drug uses extracts or ingredients from earthworms or Lumbricus rubellus which are put into capsules and are claimed to be able to treat not only typhus, but also drugs for fever due to other causes, high blood pressure, gout, pneumonia, rheumatism, itching itching and so on.
Despite the fact that many people claim to be cured after using this treatment, the medical evidence is still not widely studied. Likewise with the potential for side effects, interactions with other drugs and the maximum dose.
Therefore we cannot say for sure whether this drug is safe to use for ulcer sufferers or not. Our advice is, it doesn't matter if you want to use this medicine, but make sure your stomach is not empty so that if there is an effect of increasing stomach acid, it won't hurt your stomach. If after using the drug you feel abdominal pain, nausea, bloating or other symptoms, consult a doctor for further treatment. Regarding the dosage, this is also not something that we can share, you just need to follow the dosage listed on the package. So, hopefully it answers your question.
