Trichopol (Metronidazole) is a drugantimicrobial and antiprotozoal action, which has a rather wide range of indications. Apply it in the treatment of trichomonas, giardiasis, peritonitis, inflammation of the uterus and appendages, abscess of the abdominal cavity, pneumonia, bronchitis, pleurisy. With the help of Trichopolum, meningitis is treated, infections of bones and skin, infection of blood, are prescribed to avoid postoperative complications.
Why it is impossible to take Trichopolum and alcohol at the same time?
The drug Trichopol is used both for fighting andchronic alcoholism. This is due to increased sensitivity to ethanol. If you simultaneously use Trichopol and alcohol, the process of suppressing enzymes begins, which dissolve ethyl alcohol. As a result, there is accumulation of acetaldehyde, and this is reflected in the deterioration of the person's well-being:
- nausea and vomiting occur;
- hurts in the abdomen;
- the skin becomes red;
- weakness and weakness are felt;
- cold and sticky sweat;
- the heart hurts;
- decreases blood pressure;
- there is a sense of death.
Excretion of Trichopolum is carried out through the kidneys andonly after two days. Therefore, you should be very careful when treating alcoholism is not a chronic stage. The drug should not be mixed even with beer. Trichopol is very quickly absorbed into the blood, tissues and organs, as well as into bile, breast milk, semen, saliva.
In addition, one of the serious consequences of using Trichopol and alcohol, is an allergic reaction. Quincke may even develop swelling.
Getting into the body, alcohol begins veryquickly decompose into non-toxic exchange products. Violation of this process occurs during the intake of any medications. One of these drugs - Disulfiram, which gave the name of the reaction with simultaneous with him and alcohol intake. This process is called disulfiram-alcoholic. And if you take a drug similar to it, the reaction of the body is called disulfiramoid.
Exactly the same reaction is caused by the usealcohol and Trichopol. This reaction is explained by the accumulation in the body of acetaldehyde - one of the metabolic products, which has a high toxicity. Usually this substance is quickly absorbed by enzymes. But Trichopol weakens the effect of these enzymes and acetaldehyde begins to accumulate in the body, which causes a number of characteristic symptoms.
In addition to all Trichopol and its products of exchangereduce the action of other enzymes, which leads to a decrease in norepinephrine in the central nervous system and a change in the ratio between dopamine and norepinephrine. And this further worsens the signs of a disulfiram-like reaction.
This property of Trichopolis remains for a long time after the course of treatment. Therefore, you should not take alcohol after Trichopolum for several days after the course of treatment.
Such a characteristic property allows us to usedrug in the treatment of patients with alcoholism of the chronic stage. And if the patient had to face one day with a disulfiram-like reaction, then he will have a sufficiently long and strong sense of disgust for alcoholic beverages.
As it became known, Trichopolum and alcohol are capable offor a long time to wean a person who abuses alcohol, continue to take them. Having once felt this rattling mixture, a person does not want to experience it again. This effect of the drug on the body will persist for a long time and its degree will depend on the amount of the dose of Trichopolum taken. The more alcohol is consumed and Trichopolum is eaten, the more likely the patient will develop a collapse and he will lose consciousness.
When a patient undergoes treatment for a chronicalcoholism, Trichopol appointed whole courses. This method of treatment helps to prevent first the desire to take alcohol, and then in general, help to avoid heavy drinking-bouts.
Basically, the drug takes 10 days onetablet (250 mg) 2 times a day. But they can be appointed for a longer period of time - up to several months. They treat chronic alcoholism strictly under the supervision of a doctor, using other auxiliaries.
Treating Trichopol and other diseases alsoassumes a complete rejection of alcohol-containing beverages. In the opposite case, this can lead to very different consequences, and very serious.
One-time use or another repetitionreaction to the joint intake of alcohol and Trichopolis gradually leads to the formation of a reflex interrelation. It manifests itself as a disgust and fear of taking alcohol, intolerance to their smell and taste.
Such a reaction arises in those who wish to takealcohol and Trichopolum simultaneously. The half-life of the drug is 8 hours. Since during treatment Trichopolum is taken by courses and taken several times a day, it is impossible to choose the interval when alcohol and Trichopolum do not come into interaction.
