WHAT TO DRINK THE MEDICINE WITH

Choy
Tea contains tannin - an active substance that affects the rate of drug absorption. In some cases, it causes excessive agitation, for example, against the background of treatment with antidepressants. In others, it reduces the effectiveness of the drug (when taking oral contraceptives). Do not take "heart", "stomach" tablets and antibiotics with tea.

Coffee
It is refreshing and has a strong urinary drive effect. If you take the medication with coffee, you may cause the drug to leave the body too quickly or increase its effects (e.g., including painkillers).

Sut
In some cases, it is especially recommended to take medications with milk, such as potassium supplements and vitamins. However, antibiotics and “heart” drugs belonging to the tetracycline group do not like to interact with milk.

Alcohol
To see the rate at which drugs are absorbed in the background of alcohol, scientists have created an artificial environment similar to the small intestine. Experiments have shown that almost 60 percent of the drugs tested dissolve more quickly in an alcoholic liquid. Alcohol is strictly prohibited, especially when taking antidepressants, antibiotics, analgesics, and antipyretics.

Even paracetamol, which is considered harmless, can poison the liver when combined with alcohol.

Carbonated drinks
The uselessness of sugary whey drinks is that it irritates the gastric mucosa, causes nausea, bloating, and in combination with the drug becomes a real "bomb" for the gastrointestinal tract. This is especially true for digestive, diuretic, antibiotics.

Compotes and pickles
Doctors may recommend this last option to patients suffering from gastritis and peptic ulcer: the acid surrounds the walls of the stomach, thereby reducing the irritability of the drug. However, the therapeutic effect of the drug is also reduced, and it is important to take this into account. The tablet should not be taken with compote - fruit acids can alter the pharmacological effects of some medications, including gastric lavage and antihypertensive agents.

What to drink with?

It is best to use plain boiled or commercially available still water at room temperature. It is also important not to save water: it takes at least half a glass of water to take one tablet (not one or two sips as in most cases).
