What will happen to my husband if he eats before the hour is up after taking sucralfate.My husband is a stroke survivor and he is insisting he eats before the hour. He has issues of not understanding things and getting upset.
Men, they are such stubborn @$$es arent they?! Something like a stroke just seems to bring it out more. I know exactly where you are coming from. I've seen it enough! lol If he eats before the hour is up, the medicine doesnt work as well. It needs to sit on the empty stomach to heal. Try to keep him as close to that hour mark as you can. Do your best to distract him in some way to get that hour in but dont let it undermine your sanity! If you have to let him eat to keep the peace, let him eat, but the medicine wont be quite as effective as if you let it sit for the hour.
Don't feel lonely... I've had the same kind of trouble with MY husband, as to when to take meds/when to eat--- and he didn't even have a stroke!
What IS it about the male personality, that they just can't/won't follow the simplest rules/directions???
Good Luck to you--and stay sane. :)
