What happens if medicine is taken after it's expiry date?

What happens if medicine is taken after it's expiry date?

Lata rushed into my consulting room with tears rolling down her cheeks. She was angry and visibly upset. Lata’s both kids were delivered by me. She was an experienced mother. She was very diligent about the baby’s health and never missed on the vaccination schedule. She used to take her kids to the same pediatrician for years together. On one fine day, her pediatrician informed her that the child was given a vaccine which had expired one month back and Lata was shattered.

 Like many of my patients who consider me to be their “friend- philosopher- guide” besides being theirgynecologist, Lata came to me for help and guidance.Lata was literally fuming. She said. “I trusted that doctor so much and how could she be so negligentto me and my child?” It was a clear case of medical error. The pediatrician was extremely apologetic and felt sorry about the whole incidence. We know that medication errors are the commonest errors in healthcare. Actually. this mistake was caused because of a goof up in the pattern of writing expiry date. We know that the Americans write the date in “mm/dd” format and In India we use “dd/mm” format. Precisely this was the cause of this blunder. Lata was extremely worried and tensed about the ill effects of the expired medication. “Doctor, I even check a loaf of bread for the “consume best before” date. I don’t allow anyone to eat even a slice after that date. We make fresh food every day. We don’t consume “Basi” (stale) food at home. And look here. My little one has been injected with a vaccine which has expired a month back!!!” Lata blew off. She was not wrong at all. Most people believe that medication post expiry, like food, may rot or turn into some poisonous substance and be very harmful if consumed. So is this true? What is the meaning of expiry date?

The expired medications may not have the same potency. Hence one may need to revalidate the potency or simply take an additional dose.In nutshell, if expired medications ( tablets/ injections) get used inadvertently, no guarantee can be given about its effectiveness but it will not cause harm or untoward effect too.

"So what did Lata do? Lata met two pediatricians and discussed the matter. Both suggested that thechild should be given another dose of vaccine. Sadly, the child had to take additional injection but Lata was sure that there is no harm caused to the child. Herpediatrician gave an additional dose of vaccine to the baby. Lata continues to follow up with the same doctor. She and her doctor both have become more vigilant about the medications as they both know that human errors are possible in any one’s hand".

Any form of psychological stress is to be avoided during pregnancy. Emotional issues are known to initiate preterm labour. Avoid all stressful activities specially during the 7th and 8th months. But direct effect on the newborn is unlikely.

Njavarakizhi - What To Expect From it?

Njavarakizhi - What To Expect From it?

Are you looking for a good body massage procedure, which will help in rejuvenating your senses and also lighten up your skin? You should go for Njavarakizhi. It is an effective Ayurvedic therapy with several benefits. It is especially good for people suffering from paralysis, arthritis, lethargy, body weakness, stress and trauma. It also helps in maintaining an ideal muscle tone and relaxes your mind.

Procedure
The procedure of the Njavarakizhi may take up to an hour. First, your body will be preconditioned using oil. After you are massaged all over the body with the oil, you will be allowed to relax and lie down for some time. While you relax, Njavara rice gets cooked with milk and some herbs. Herbs such as deodar, mustard, sida and even milk and ghee are used for preparation. After being cooked, the preparation is placed in cotton pouches and used to massage your body. The pouches are gently rubbed and pressed on your body for 40 minutes. Then, the rice is applied all over body while it is still warm. After wiping it off, another type of oil is applied on your body as you relax. For making the treatment more effective, certain oral medicines may also be taken, such as Leyham and Kashayam.

Health benefits of Njavarakizhi
There are several important health benefits of Njavarakizhi, which include the following:

  1. Your skin is kept healthy. The skin being the largest body organ, needs proper care. This treatment is very effective in improving your skin texture and making it bright and beautiful.
  2. The treatment enhances your muscle tone and strengthens your muscles. In case you are experiencing body-weakness in general because of aging, Njavarakizhi is ideal for you.
  3. This treatment helps in lowering body cholesterol levels. High cholesterol is a major health condition in modern day and the Njavarakizhi therapy is an ideal remedy. Because of the innate effect of sweat inducing, blood circulation is regulated and cholesterol levels are lowered.
  4. Njavarakizhi therapy is very effective for giving relief to stress. It helps you to relax and eliminates traces of stress. The mind gets to be at rest, which allows you to calm down and relax.
  5. Njavarakizhi also helps in easing pain and inflammation that is associated with arthritis. Moreover, regular Njavarakizhi treatments help in strengthening your muscles and hence, you are provided with long-term relief from arthritis symptoms.

These and many other wonderful therapies are there in Ayurveda which not only cures but detoxifies your body. This is an all natural therapy which is associated with no side effects. Kindly consult to know what are the best Ayurvedic solutions for you in terms of diet, home remedies, therapies and medicines.

I am breastfeeding the baby and there was some blood and pus below the nipple. Now I am applying the ointment, but the lumps are getting formed and I have to expel every 1 hr. How to prevent lumps? And can I use nipple shields from next time? As baby is getting teeth, I think because of sharp teeth I am facing this issue.

Babies can cause a little bite and cracked/sore nipples during breast feeding but not lumps. They may be due inadequate emptying of each breast or some hormonal issue which you should get checked. Plus I would also suggest to not your baby from the infected breast with pus. Feed him from second breast.

Dear user. I can understand. This is really nice. Safe sex is always good. Contraceptive methods can be roughly divided into five types: Hormonal methods. combined hormones (pill, patch, nuvaring) ... Barrier methods (chemical and physical) condoms (male condom, female condom) ... Intrauterine Device (IUD) (Copper & Hormonal) Natural Methods. abstinence. Take care.

Yes it is! probably this is cervical factor infertility. You need to do a simple 7-14 day antibiotic course to finish the pelvic infection. Without that thin egg white discharge the sperms won't be able to climb up and reach the egg for pregnancy.
