Do you love medicines the way I do them? In my cosmetic bag lie mascara, blush, pentalginum, erius, suprastinum in ampoules, fosfalugel, allochol, aspirin, activated carbon, anaprilin and ketonal. No, I'm not anything special, everything, like everyone else - then I sneeze at the office dust, then my head splits. However, here it should be noted that I'm a big fan of instructions for use, I differentiate pentalgin from panadol, and diclofenac - from diazepam. But many of my friends are taking something wrong, and not from that, considering many serious drugs as something like a vitamin.

Analgin, sedalgin, baralginEffective cures for pain. And they cause blood diseases and severe allergies.
The main active substance of these drugs is metamizole sodium. With prolonged use, it causes many complications, most of them are associated with exposure to white blood cells. In extreme cases, these drugs lead to agranulocytosis - a serious impairment of immunity. All drugs with metamizole sodium are allergens.
The most severe possible reactions to analgesics are anaphylactic shock, bronchospastic syndrome, toxic epidermal necrolysis, or Lyell's syndrome (a terribly unpleasant thing: the temperature rises, a rash appears, and then begins to peel off the skin). If this is not enough for you, keep in mind that any of these drugs severely injures the mucosa of the gastrointestinal tract. Therefore, they must drink during or after a meal. If you regularly use analgesics - one or two tablets a day for a month - you can cause serious harm to health.
Pentalgin, tetralginEffective and effective cures for pain. In addition to blood diseases and allergies, it is also addictive.
Pentalgin is composed of metamizole sodium (and therefore, everything said above about allergies, necrolysis and problems with the gastrointestinal tract to it fully applies), naproxen, phenobarbital, codeine and caffeine. Naproxen is a substance from the same group as metamizole. Here its one, the only one from the list above, in tetralgin is not present, but all other ingredients are the same as in pentalgin. Phenobarbital - a hypnotic drug, has an anticonvulsant effect. He is referred to the list of psychotropic substances. Codeine reduces cough reflex, it also refers to pre-drug components - it can be synthesized into a prohibited drug. Therefore, pentalgin can "get hooked", and in order to relieve the pain, each time will be required a larger dosage.
Caffeine stimulates the respiratory and vasomotor centers - raises blood pressure, which is partly reduced by codeine, metamizole and naproxen. Caffeine also increases the heart rate and increases myocardial oxygen demand. That is, with tachycardia and ischemic heart disease, tetralgin and pentalgin can not be consumed. And give up those medicines if you are going to a fitness club. The dose of caffeine, although small, but still it's dope. Of course, if you are not an athlete, you are not threatened with doping control. But, after drinking a stimulant, you can get injured, for example, by missing the moment when it's time to stop.
Aspirin, UpsaReduce temperature, reduce thrombosis. And they cause ulcers and bleeding.
Effective drugs - well reduce the temperature, moderately anesthetize, reduce the severity of headaches. Aspirin has another property - it reduces blood clotting. Due to this, its fluidity increases, so the drug is used for ischemic heart disease: blood flow improves, especially in capillaries, thrombus formation decreases. But even a single intake of aspirin can lead to a chemical burn of the gastric mucosa.
And researchers from Baylor College of Medicine (Houston) found that 70% of patients who took the drug for three months, there are small intestinal injuries. In general, in America, where aspirin is a favorite drug, up to 100,000 hospitalizations a year are due to complications after taking acetylsalicylic acid. Therefore, do not drink it on an empty stomach, give preference to effervescence (it is absorbed faster, and less injures the stomach). With ulcers, with suspicion of erosive-ulcerative gastritis or colitis, aspirin is severely contraindicated. Also, you should not take the drug to relieve pain in uterine bleeding and prolonged painful periods.
Always strictly follow the doctor's prescription and instructions for the use of the drug and in no case exceed the dosage.

Nurofen, MIG, ibuprofenThey are used at high temperature, headache and toothache. And they cause an ulcer.
The main component of all these drugs is ibuprofen, a non-specific anti-inflammatory substance. It negatively affects the gastrointestinal tract. If there is or was gastritis (and which of us did not have them?), Suspected ulcer, erosive ulcerative colitis, this medication should be abstained. The manufacturer warns that side effects are rarely observed in the first two to three days of admission. True, there are "lucky", which the stomach says "good-bye!" On the first day. If the pain is intolerable, before you drink a pill, try to eat something. And, of course, this medicine does not help with the pain in the stomach (otherwise there are those who are sure of the opposite).
Paracetamol, acetaminophen, effer langan, panadolReduce temperature, anesthetize. They are used in pediatrics. And they kill the liver.
Paracetamol (the active substance of all these medicines) is given even to infants, so it seems to many to be an absolutely safe and easy preparation. In fact, it can very seriously damage the liver and kidneys. Therefore, if you have a problem with these organs or you have recently had hepatitis, you can not take the drug. In caring for the liver, paracetamol and alcohol should not interfere. We hope you do not drink cocktails with pills, but if someone at a party in your presence is going to treat a headache with acetaminophen, try to explain that you can not do this.
In addition, there is a study according to which paracetamol increases the chances of developing bronchial asthma. These findings came at the Institute of Medical Research in New Zealand. However, some scientists believe that paracetamol can not provoke asthma, it only gives a boost in those cases when a person already has a predisposition. In any case, at the moment, paracetamol is one of the best antipyretic drugs for children, which is suitable for adults. But you can not take it uncontrollably categorically. Strictly follow the doctor's prescription and instructions for use and in no case exceed the dosage.
Mezim, panzynormReplenish the lack of enzymes of the pancreas.
We all know that mesim - for the stomach is indispensable. In fact, this medicine works in the intestine, and drinking it to healthy people who do not have a chronic pancreatic disease is very harmful. If you systematically replace the secret of your own pancreas with a medicine, then, eventually, it will provoke her to a more moderate job. And then you just can not do without artificial enzymes. If you are trying to feed your beloved grandmother, lamenting, "what are you skinny and pale," and putting pies and salad with mayonnaise, it is not always convenient. But then you can wash your cousin dishes, floor and windows - this is a much more effective way to combat overeating.
But-shpu in our country is considered a cure for all diseases, and it is effective only for pain associated with spasms. From the pain in the stomach, it does not help.
|Take The Pill Correctly|
Reduce the pain caused by spasms.
These medicines have virtually no side effects, they can be taken even by pregnant women in the second and third trimesters. But-shpa is strictly contraindicated in severe hepatic and renal failure, chronic heart failure, cardiogenic shock, arterial hypotension, and angle-closure glaucoma. In all other cases, you can drink it at least every day (if, of course, this is necessary). The problem is that no-shpu in our country is considered a cure for all diseases. And it is effective only for pain associated with spasms. From pain in the stomach no-shpa does not help (although it does not hurt).
It is used to treat influenza and colds.
Oscilococcinum is not a medicine, not a medical product, but a homeopathic remedy. This is a diluted extract of the liver and heart of the Barbary duck. Homeopathy can be trusted. And you can believe in the house-believer - this is a private matter for everyone. The trouble is that the effectiveness of homeopathic beads and powders is not proven. Nothing harmful, but nothing useful. And the British Parliamentary Health Committee generally believes that all homeopathic remedies are placebo, which work thanks to the magical power of the patient's autosuggestion. But the fact is that many ocillococcinums really help. And what effect is it - placebo or something else, we do not undertake to affirm.
