Don't take cold medicine with coffee

Colds are easy in winter and spring, and many people cannot avoid them. As an office worker, in order to relieve headache, nasal congestion, fever and other cold symptoms, he went to a pharmacy to buy anti-cold medicine. After taking the medicine, I still wanted to keep on working, but felt dizzy and unable to concentrate, so I chose to use espresso to refresh. Since anti-cold drugs are mostly compound preparations, they are generally composed of antipyretic analgesics, vasoconstrictors, antitussive and expectorants, antihistamines, and central stimulants. Cold medicine contains antipyretic analgesics and central stimulant caffeine, so some people who take coffee after taking the medicine don't have much time, and the stomach begins to hurt, and it is so painful that they die. I thought there was something wrong with the cold medicine, so I hurried to the hospital to see the doctor. After consulting the situation in detail, the doctor thought it was the fault of coffee. The cold medicine contains caffeine, which has a stimulating effect on the gastric mucosa. One of the adverse reactions in the instructions of many anti-cold medicines will write that taking this medicine may cause gastrointestinal discomfort. The caffeine contained in coffee increases the irritation of the gastric mucosa and exacerbates the adverse reactions. Therefore, patients with gastric ulcers should be cautious with cold medicines containing caffeine.
Therefore, drugstore pharmacists can appropriately remind consumers when recommending cold medicines, and do not take coffee when taking anti-cold medicines, especially those anti-cold medicines that already contain caffeine. In addition, do not drink alcohol or alcoholic beverages after taking anti-cold medicine.
