Use Of Liquid Medicine For More Than 1 Person?
Hello, I want to ask, can 1 liquid medicine be used by 2 or more users?
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, what exactly do you mean? What are the active ingredients in the drug? Is it prescribed directly by a doctor? What are the complaints experienced by the two drug users?
Medication can be given for various purposes, such as to relieve symptoms, to overcome the causes of the disease, to control the disease, and so on. These drugs can be various types of preparations, some are liquid, solid, steam, injection, and so on.
Liquid medicine, no problem used by more than 1 user, provided there are medical indications that require it. For example, liquid paracetamol can be consumed for 2 children who are both experiencing a fever. Giving this drug can be done at the same time, or also different, as long as the drug is still suitable for consumption.
However, the above conditions certainly do not apply to all types of drugs. Drugs that are not classified as over-the-counter drugs, are strongly discouraged from being consumed carelessly, either by 1 person or more. Because, determining whether or not the consumption of certain drugs is necessary, how much is the dose of consumption, and how long can the drug be consumed is certainly the duty of the doctor. Although the symptoms look the same, not all diseases can be treated with the same drugs. For example, shortness of breath, can occur due to asthma, bronchitis, pneumothorax, pleural effusion, gastroesophageal reflux disease, gastritis, heart problems, excessive anxiety disorders, psychosomatic disorders, and so on. Various conditions of course the treatment can vary.
Therefore, you should be more careful in taking drugs, including liquid medicine, to avoid the risk of dangerous side effects.
I hope this helps.
