When you have a cold, it is not possible to take several cold medicines at the same time. It can not enhance the curative effect, but may cause serious adverse reactions, even liver failure.
the cold medicines in drugstores are basically compound cold medicines, which are mainly composed of two or more components of paracetamol, chlorphenamine maleate, dextromethorphan and pseudoephedrine. Some cold medicines also contain artificial bezoar or caffeine.
if we take a variety of compound cold medicines at the same time, it is equivalent to indirectly increasing the dosage by several times. It can not enhance the curative effect, but may cause serious adverse reactions and even liver failure.
taking acetaminophen as an example, the maximum daily dose of acetaminophen for antipyretic or general analgesia is 2G. If the intake is too large in one day, it will cause severe liver cell necrosis and renal tubular necrosis.
especially for these people, such as drinking a lot at ordinary times, liver damage and malnutrition, the risk of hepatocyte necrosis is greatly increased.
some people will say that if I choose to take Chinese patent medicine, I should not overdo it? As a matter of fact, many Chinese adult cold medicines also have western medicine ingredients. For example, Fufang Ganmaoling granule contains acetaminophen, chlorphenamine and caffeine. PARRENT&CHILDREN
