Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: I have flu and running nose, can I take Polypod Drops 10ml?

  • No, this medication is not to be taken by yourself
  • This medicine is a higher antibiotic meant for severe infections and your doctor will prescribe you the same only if it is essential
  • This medication is not for viral infections, and generally, flu occurs due to viruses

Q: Can I stop taking this medicine before the prescribed duration?

A: No, finish the full course of the treatment even if you feel better. Though you start feeling better, there is still infection-causing bacteria present in the body, which can make the infection to return in a few days. Also, when one does not complete the course, these few bacteria later become resistant to these antibiotics and cause severe infections, which are difficult to treat. Hence, always finish the course of antibiotics as prescribed by your doctor.
