The correct rules for taking pre-meal medicine and post-meal medicine
The correct rules for taking pre-meal medicine and post-meal medicine. The medicine does not work if the medicine is not taken at that time. It is a terrible thing that if you do not take the medicine on time, it can have serious side effects.
In fact, many of us do not know what it really means to take medicine before and after a meal.
A lot of times our doctors don't explain it and even if the doctor explains it, we don't pay much attention to it. We wonder what will happen next.
Some medicine is taken on an empty stomach and some medicine is taken on a full stomach. There are also some medications that are taken with meals. Medication before meals means that it should be taken at least 30 minutes before meals. Some medicines that are taken 1 hour before meals. Now if you forget to take the medicine and eat it, then you can't take that medicine immediately. The medicine should be taken 2 hours after eating.
Post-meal medication means it should be taken at least 30 minutes after a meal. Again, any medicine has to be taken immediately after taking food. Be sure to ask your doctor exactly how long before / after taking the medicine you are taking.
Rules for taking antibiotics:
People in Bangladesh love to take antibiotics. And doctors also like to take antibiotics. They may give you 6 hours in a row for 8 hours or 12 hours in a row.
A total of 5/6/12/18 doctors have told you to eat and you are taking antibiotics at any time you like in the morning, noon, night without any time. You are happy to take antibiotics but do you know the damage that is being done to your body.
Antibiotics do not work in the body if not taken at the right time or in the right dose. Instead, your body's immune system may be permanently damaged by those antibiotics. This means that it may not work in your body any more.
If you don't take the medicine on time, your disease will not be cured but you may be in danger.
What is the relation of medicine with food?
Food is related to our body and medicine is also related to it. When we eat, it causes many changes in our body. When such food enters the stomach, our blood pressure increases. The amount of digestive juices or bills also increases. The amount of acidity also increases.
Now what kind of environment you need for the medicine you are taking now depends on empty stomach or full stomach, high acid or low acid, high bill or low bill, high blood pressure or low blood pressure.
Medicines that have to be taken before meals do not actually work properly with food, which means that it is better not to have any food in the digestive tract to digest them properly in order for them to work properly.
For example, thyroid medicine is often such that if there is any food in the digestive tract, the medicine is not digested properly because of them. Although it is digested a lot of times, it does not work the way it should. Again many times mixing with food can create a dangerous reaction in your body.
Again, the medicine after the meal, if there is no food in the stomach, it will not be digested properly. Medications such as diabetes will not be digested on an empty stomach. Conversely gastritis can be as dangerous as ulcers. Medicines can reach the bloodstream properly after a meal or are properly digested in the body. Side effects are less.
So watch the clock and make it a habit to take medicine just in time. And you must consult a doctor before taking any medicine. Ask him out well if he is no longer absorbed in the connection. How much is being given? How long to eat? How long before or after a meal? What are the side effects of the drug? Which foods should be stopped while taking this medicine, and which foods are better to take. Do not take medicine as you like.
