Self-Medication & Risk

You may come across several people in your life, which treat their illnesses of every sort themselves. Surprisingly, there are millions of educated and uneducated people in this world, which treat their illnesses with their own knowledge rather than going to the concerned health expert. Unfortunately, what many of these don’t know is the fact that self-medication is a serious health risk no matter how serious the illness is!

Generally, the flu is considered a common illness, which makes people deal with the virus themselves. Nevertheless, people take unnecessary antibiotic medicines, devoid of any medical advice to treat their medical illness. This leads to further problems. Often patients with flu coming to doctors are the ones, who have treated their flu for days through their knowledge and now when all the efforts are in vain, they have come to see a doctor.

It is advised to all such people that they should never do so. Taking unnecessary medicines without prior prescription makes one prone to several kinds of allergies and blood reactions. It is high time you should realize that medicines have science associated with them, which is beyond the knowledge of any lay person. Only doctors can understand all the features of one single medicine, after which, he prescribes it.

The time people spend on self-medication can actually be spent on preventive measures. People should, at least, follow basic precautionary measures for common extreme weathers and illnesses. This makes you less vulnerable to diseases and common illnesses.
