Pay attention to the poisonous serum of Chinese patent medicine
It is generally believed that Chinese patent medicines have fewer side effects, are safe to take, and sometimes they are not taken according to the doctor’s advice. This practice is extremely detrimental to health.
Some proprietary Chinese medicines contain potent and toxic ingredients, and some contain western medicine ingredients.
These Chinese medicines have certain damage to the human body, and accidentally may cause adverse reactions or drug-induced diseases.
For example, a proprietary Chinese medicine for treating diabetes contains glibenclamide; a cough-relieving Chinese medicine contains ephedrine, ammonium chloride, and clenbuterol; the digestive system contains atropine, procaine, and sucralfate.Etc.; Chinese medicine for depressurization contains hydrochlorothiazide, clonidine hydrochloride and the like.
Although the content of western medicine contained in proprietary Chinese medicines is generally reduced, if the patient exceeds the dosage, the risk will be greatly increased, and even serious cases may be life-threatening.
When using proprietary Chinese medicines, the efficacy of single-flavor Chinese medicine or western medicine is more reliable, and it is generally recommended to avoid mixing medicine.
If the drug must be mixed, the drug composition should be clarified and the risk of repeated drug use should occur.
In general, good safety is one of the advantages of proprietary Chinese medicines.
The Chinese medicinal materials used in the production of proprietary Chinese medicines are mostly natural medicines, but they are still toxic substitutes. It can be said that there is no non-toxic alternative to proprietary Chinese medicines.
“Shen Nong tastes the herb, and encounters seventy poisons in one day.” In the process of searching for and identifying food, ancient people accidentally ate some poisonous herbs. After the toxic reaction, they cured some diseases, so they found out.traditional Chinese medicine.
Toxicity is a basic attribute of traditional Chinese medicine, but toxicity is not equal to poison. The key is how to apply it correctly.
In order to avoid the occurrence of toxic side effects, the first thing to do is to comply with the drug certificate.
In the ancient book “Medical Statement”: “Where a doctor uses medicine, it must be certified first, and the certification must be examined first.
The trial is clear, the certification is true; the certification is true, and the medicine is used.
“The diagnosis is unknown, the drug certificate does not match, the “heat syndrome” uses “hot medicine”, the “cold certificate” uses “cold medicine”, which is tantamount to refueling on the fire and aggravating the condition.
Must understand the main ingredients of Chinese patent medicines, usage, dosage, compatibility and so on.
The book “Poisonous Chinese Herbal Medicine” records 487 kinds of toxic Chinese herbal medicines, among which 22 kinds of extremely poisonous drugs with a lethal dose of less than 1 gram, the therapeutic amount is close to the amount of poisoning, and 50 kinds of large poisons which can cause serious consequences are used excessively.
There are 28 kinds of traditional Chinese medicines used in the Regulations on the Administration of Toxic Drugs for Medical Use issued by the State Council.
For example, a proprietary Chinese medicine containing Chinese herbal medicine, Huang Yaozi, has obvious hepatotoxicity. Excessive or long-term application can cause liver damage; Chinese patent medicines containing Mutong, Guangfang, and Aristolochia have obvious aristolochic acid.Nephrotoxicity, improper use can lead to kidney damage; Chinese medicines containing glutinous rice, improper use can lead to heart damage and arrhythmia; Chinese medicine containing Strychnos, excessive use can cause nervous system damage.
External proprietary Chinese medicines generally avoid oral administration.
Sometimes in order to improve the curative effect, a variety of proprietary Chinese medicines may be used in combination, and it is possible to reuse some of them, and the conversion dose is increased. If it is a toxic medicine or a medicinal medicinal taste, toxic anisotropy is likely to occur.
It is also possible that there is a contraindication between different proprietary Chinese medicines, such as Fuzi Lizhong Pill and Jinshang Shenqi Pill, because both Chinese patent medicines contain aconite (the main ingredient aconitine), which may cause toxic side effects.
For example, if a proprietary Chinese medicine containing aconite is used in combination with a Chinese patent medicine containing Fritillaria and Pinellia to treat cough, there will be incompatibility contraindications (“18 anti-Chinese wolfberry, anti-Pinus, Fritillaria”).
Finally, we must pay attention to “the disease is only a stop”, can not be taken for a long time.
Some Chinese medicines are less toxic, but they can be used for long-term use to accumulate poisoning.
In order to avoid the side effects of proprietary Chinese medicines, doctors should not only fully grasp the basic knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine’s taste, function, usage and dosage, toxicity, compatibility and other aspects, but also be familiar with the modern pharmacological knowledge of traditional Chinese medicine and understand the main ingredients of each traditional Chinese medicine., metabolism in the body, side effects and so on.
As a patient, you should not buy medicines without permission. You must purchase medicines under the guidance of a doctor.
