What You Need To Know About Prescription Medicines

By Mansi Gupta

Prescription drugs as is evident from the very name are those that are prescribed to us by doctor to cure our illness. These drugs are not illicit and almost all of them are readily available in the retail medicine stores. But there are quite a few crucial things enlisted below that we ought to keep in mind regarding the prescription medicines.

Prescription medicines can be habit forming. Due to the relief that these medicines provide, people take them persistently or indefatigably. Anti depressants, painkillers, methamphetamines are the drugs that cause addiction universally. People overlook their addictiveness to the drug and try to hide it in the name of comfort and the medicine's prescriptive nature. But the fact is that only illegitimate drugs do not entail drug abuse. The recommended lawful medicines too can be the cause of serious drug abuse. So an excess dosage of prescriptive drugs is also fatal.

Before investing your hard earned money in the drugs advised to you, it is better that you know completely about them. Do not hang back in informing your physician of all your bodily problems. If due to some reason you suspect that the prescribed drug can cause trouble, confirm it with your doctor first.

Ask for alternatives to antibiotics. Antibiotics are famous for their side effects. Most people are not able to bear these offshoots. So, asking for substitute mild medicines is not a bad idea.

Requesting for herbal medicines or other natural cures can save you from the hefty expenditure that is incurred on their purchase. Generally prescription drugs are too costly for everyone to afford. Therefore, natural cures like intaking a diet rich in a particular nutrient, exercising daily to minimize pain in joints and other preventions and treatments like acupuncture etc. can be certainly favorable.

Buy medicines judiciously. Make it sure that you check the MRP, expiry and manufacturing date on the cover before paying for the medicine. Ask for discount if any on your purchase and don't forget the bill.

Never exchange and transfer medicines. Though saving money is very imperative yet health (the most precious wealth) is not to be compromised upon. Often people pass on their medicines to others who they believe is undergoing a problem similar to what they confronted. For instance John would have no qualms in forwarding his antidepressant drug to his friend who is down with depression or Julia considers it right to give her pain killer that was prescribed for her back ache to Mary who has sprained her ankle.

But this very act is not just wrong even illegal. When a doctor prescribes you a medicine he takes into notice your whole physical and psychological condition. Just as a red color shirt might not suit every face, similarly, a single medicine cannot be positively effective in every case. In fact, many a times there can be serious repercussions because of the chemical reactions that take place within the body after taking the drug.

Pharming is another issue associated with prescriptive medicines. Pharming designates the swallowing of many tablets together in chorus. Teenagers to adults are found practicing pharming. They do it to save the effort of taking the different medicines time and again. But preventing oneself from this little exertion can be critical. The medicines are scheduled differently so that the body's internal mechanism can accommodate itself and absorb the chemical reactions. While if they are gulped simultaneously, there is acute threat of various spontaneous mixed reactions in the body that might go out of control.

Last but never the least, keeping the precarious nature of life, it should be mandatory for every individual to get medical insurance. Medical insurance is the greatest help in the grave hours of our life. The insurance will not just enable you to meet the hospital expenditure but also the cumbersome outlay on prescriptive medicines.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)

"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
