in our daily life, there are many medication habits and medication reminders that we need to pay attention to. Because as long as we really do scientific and rational drug use from multiple links, we can really guarantee the health and safety of life. As we all know, taking medicine is usually given with water, but before taking some medicine, you can drink a glass of milk to “pad your stomach”, which most people may not know.
as we all know, milk is a protein containing food with high nutritional value. And some data show that when we are using some special drugs, if we drink some milk properly, it can help us prevent drugs from hurting the stomach.
when using antipyretic, analgesic and anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin, paracetamol and ibuprofen, or glucocorticoid drugs such as prednisone, dexamethasone and cortisone, it is easy to cause gastric mucosal damage, and sometimes even cause human inflammation or ulcer. In addition to these two kinds of drugs, there are other drugs can cause gastric mucosal damage, such as digitalis, iodine, tetracycline, reserpine and so on. At this time, if you drink a glass of milk before taking medicine, the milk will form a special protective film on the surface of the human gastric mucosa, and then play the role of protecting the gastric mucosa.
. However, although proper milk can protect gastric mucosa and prevent drug damage to the stomach, experts tell us that the drinking time of milk is particular. Generally, it is not suitable to drink milk while using drugs. This is mainly because when the drug and milk are mixed together, the milk will also form a protective film on the surface of the drug, just as it forms on the gastric mucosa. Such a film will tightly wrap the drug, thus blocking the release of the active ingredients of the drug, thus affecting the efficacy of the drug. In addition, when some drugs are used with milk at the same time, they will cause interaction, such as tetracycline antibiotics, iron, cardiotonics, anti Parkinson drugs, antihypertensive drugs, antipsychotics and so on.
as a final reminder, the temperature of milk should be appropriate, not too hot, but also too cold, to prevent too high or too low temperature stimulation to the stomach. Of course, once there are significant gastrointestinal symptoms, just drinking a glass of milk is impossible to have any obvious effect. At this time, we should go to the hospital as soon as possible to seek the help of doctors.
for those who need long-term use of stomach damaging drugs, it is recommended to drink appropriate amount of milk after 1-2 hours of drug use. This can not only ensure the efficacy of drugs, but also prevent gastric mucosal damage to a certain extent, killing two birds with one stone.
