Side Effects of Allohol
In general, Allohol is well tolerated by patients, occasionally causing only side effects such as diarrhea and allergic reactions due to hypersensitivity to the components of the drug.
According to the instructions, Allohol should be taken strictly after meals. This is due to the fact that the drug increases the secretion of gastric juice. If there is no food content in the stomach, the hydrochloric acid will irritate the gastric mucosa, leading to the development of peptic ulcer.
During pregnancy, the use of Allohol is allowed, but only after consultation with your doctor.
During lactation, it is not recommended to take Allohol because of the garlic contained in the medication, which is able to reduce the taste qualities of breast milk and thus provoke a baby’s failure from the breast.
In the case of long-term use of Allohol in dosages exceeding the recommended dosage, overdose symptoms may appear: rash and itching on the skin, heartburn, diarrhea, nausea, and an increase in liver enzyme activity. In this case, it is recommended to conduct symptomatic therapy.
It is not recommended to take Allohol with alcohol together, as this may cause diarrhea. In addition, alcohol in combination with Allohol can cause a spasm of the sphincter of the biliary tract, which will make it impossible to fully excrete and outflow of bile and, as a result, cause severe pain in the right hypochondrium.
