What Is Qam In Medication?
Understanding Why Some Medications Are Prescribed
Doctors, nurses, and other health workers use medical abbreviations only to impress patients, and this a misconception that many people don't know. To understand why some drugs are taken, you need to understand the purpose for which the medication is administered. Some medications can have side effects that can interfere with your daily activities.
It is not advisable to give someone medication with a known side effect of drowsiness if they are planning to drive. The best time to take such medications is at night so that the side-effects can be reduced and the patient can continue with their daily activities. Imagine having a major exam and taking medication for insomniat the same time.
It would better to take the medication at night when you want to retire the next day, rather than before you enter the exam hall. Mood medications cause drowsiness. In order to keep the patients productive during the day, the doctors prescribe the drugs at night before they sleep so that they don't have a negative impact on the daytime activities.
To understand why a medication is prescribed, you must understand the mechanism of action of the medication and the reason for which it is prescribed. If you take a medication in the morning it can interrupt your sleep at night. Taking the medications in the morning is better for their effects to last throughout the day.
