BEWARE: Know the medicines that should never be taken at the same time

Every now and then when our body seems failing or feeling unwell, we always rely on medication. People often self--medicate to alleviate any pain or illnesses they feel.



As long as the symptoms are not severe. We mostly take over the counter medications such as for fever, cough and colds, pain reliever, allergies or abdominal cramps.

But Physicians recommendation and prescription is always the priority. Most people are unaware of the adverse effects and they are confident that it's always alright to take same medication the last time they took it.

Also, taking antibiotics is not recommended unless it has Doctor's prescription because mostly, it is intended to take for 7 days. That's why self-mediation is not good at all.

Moreover, there's no problem taking one medication at a time, what alarming is if the individual is taking two the same medication at the same time.

For example, your're taking Biogesic, a paracetamol then combining it with Bioflu, also containing paracetamol. That's definitely a No, No! because OTC meds may be good but also have a risks in the health, especially if taking it one more at a time.

A viral post recently was circulating online about taking caution of  combining these drugs because it can cause overdose and can harm the liver.



Read this:

Alaxan and Biogesic – both drugs contain paracetamol; taking these two drugs at the same time can  overdose and may lead to liver failure and/or cancer.

Neozep and BioFlu – these two drugs are both Paracetamol-Phenylephrine Chlorphenamine but only differ in the product name.

Alaxan and Medicol - both are anti-inflammatory and contains Ibuprofen (pain reliever).

It's one of the reason why when taking medication we should know first the classification of two drugs to avoid overdosing.







Some medications are recommended to take in full stomach to avoid abdominal discomfort or cramps.

Most importantly, always remember when taking OTC medications, take consider reading the drug name first. Use caution when combining drugs or better yet consult a doctor or go to the nearest health center.
