Did You Know – 11/12/2018

  1. Stress – 62% of workers think their social media use can cause stress and affect their performance. 1 in 5 workers experience stress after receiving  a friend request from their boss. Spending time on social media can take time and energy away from work, and that can cause stress. I would have thought that solution would have been easy,  don’t spend time on social media while at work

 

2. Viagra can make you color blind – This is not a worry for normal doses. Taking too much can affect the cones of the eyes that help you see color. One case as example is that a 31-year-old man saw re for nearly a year.

 

3. Over 53 drugs interact with Grapefruit juice – Grapefruit contains a chemical that can affect how medicines are absorbed. eg too much statins or too little antihistamines of what you need and can have harmful consequences.

 

4. Don’t follow-up your pills with mouth wash – some antibiotics can react negatively  with alcohol which is an ingredient of mouth wash. Metronildazole given for dental infections, taken in conjunction with alcohol may cause stomach pains, nausea, headaches. flushing and sometimes vomiting.

5.  Dont lie down for about an hour after taking tablets – It slows down the pill’s ability to reach the stomach.
