Taking Injections Or Drugs, Which Is Best For The Body. by goldonome(m): 8:09am On Nov 03, 2019
I've noticed injections work pretty faster for me than drugs, but I hear some saying drugs are best for use. I remember when I was down with typhoid and was taken to the hospital, the doctor recommended some drugs, and I told him injections works well for me but he declined, after some weeks no major improvement he then recommend injection, and that very day I was very much relieved and that's all. to the medical personnel, is there any sought of side effects taking injections?

Injections are more effective than drugs(tablet) in most cases ( Certain conditions require taking the drug in solid form though because if it is administered in liquid form it will break down and lose some of its properties required for the treatment of the ailment) . If some injections are given as drugs they will be destroyed by the enzymes present in the stomach like (but not limited) to pepsin. Just let your doctor decide.

Injection reacts faster than drugs, for kids drug (liquid) is better cos injection if not professionally handled can affects (paralyze leg) kids.

OP what that doctor did to you by prescribing injection for you after taking drugs is called the “placebo effect”

Trust me, that injection did nothing. He just played with your head since you have so much faith in it.


To your question, I’d rather take 1m drugs than a shot of injection. I hate needles with passion though there are times needles are better Cos they are faster acting.

injection is best,Another reason for having medication in the injection form is because it may be impossible for certain patients to take tablets. These include patients who are vomiting, unconscious or for one reason or another are not able to take anything by mouth e.g. if they have a cancer lining the upper part of their alimentary canal. Hence you will find an injection alternative for almost every medication that is given by mouth and not because they are more effective.

In certain instances such as in an emergency, a medical practitioner may want to achieve an effect almost immediately, for example when a patient is bleeding and they want to stop it as soon as possible. In such instances, an injection may be preffered since it gets absorbed into the blood directly as opposed to a tablet which must first be dissolved in the stomach before getting absorbed into the bloodstream.

It is also important to note that presentation of a drug in the form of a tablet, injection or even cream may depend on the type of disease that it is designed to treat. Presence of hookworms in the stomach necessitates the use of tablets. The same also applies to a skin condition which would require a cream or ointment to be superficially applied on it unless the disease causing micro organism has entered the blood

Injection works faster and drug have a lasting healing power. And I think doctors still recommend drugs after giving injection.

For me, I loathe the piercing pain of injection and I can say I have only taken injection one or two times of my adulthood.

God bless the doctors.

Drugs come in myriads of preparations and the injectables are classed as parenteral ( besides the mouth) and given equally through several route e. g. intramuscular, intravenous, subconjunctival, intradermal, Intrathecal, intraosseous, etc. Other preparations includes the Enteral, which comes prepared as Tablets, syrups, suspensions, etc.
While the injectables have swifter onset of action because they are delivered as close as possible to the circulation or directly into it, their duration of action otherwise referred to as half-life is shorter hence requiring frequent dosing.
The Enteral route of drug administration though unpalatable is best because absorption is slow, the degradation action of the liver on the drug is less ( first-pass effect) and serum concentration of the drug is sustained over it half-life.
However, their are some factors that may warrant your doctor preferring one route over the other e.g. vomiting, malabsorption, prostration, unconciousness, urgency of resuscitation, etc.

Las Las, you can only be discharged home on oral medications.

Injections work faster because they directly enter the blood stream and perform the same thing, however, drygs have to go through ingestion and digestion before they begin to take effect

Personal preference may come into play, needles terrify some people, so, injections aren't their thing.
