Many people have some eating habits in their lives, but I don’t know if these habits can continue because of illness. For example, I often drink coffee at ordinary times. Can I drink coffee if I take cold medicine?
After taking medicine, you can’t drink coffee, mainly because coffee contains caffeine and other substances. If you take it at the same time, it will have an adverse reaction with the ingredients in cold medicine, which will easily cause discomfort such as abdominal pain and diarrhea, and even affect the efficacy. So don’t drink coffee, tea and wine during taking medicine when you are sick, and drink as much plain boiled water as possible, which can help you recover from your cold better.
Moreover, drinking coffee can help people feel refreshed. During the cold, they are already weak. After drinking coffee, they can’t rest well, which will delay the recovery of the cold. Therefore, avoid drinking coffee during illness. If you want to drink coffee, you can wait until your cold is completely cured. During this time, you should have a good rest and ensure adequate sleep.
Under normal circumstances, the cold will gradually heal in about a week. For the more serious cold, it is necessary to go to the hospital to test the blood routine. Only after the examination results are treated with targeted medication can the health be recovered slowly. Therefore, patients should observe whether their physical condition is gradually recovering after taking cold medicine. If symptoms worsen, they need to go to the hospital for examination and treatment, and do not delay time.
