Many are under the influence of popping over the counter pills every other day. It is a common practice seen in our country. People load their medicine tray with every drug available and with the help of the pharmacy shop person (whether a qualified pharmacist or not) take the tablets for even the slightest self-limiting sicknesses.


This is a highly dangerous act, as one cannot be sure of what drug reactions could occur if the right dose and combination is not consumed. It also leads to the extreme limit of drug tolerance, where when real need for the drug comes there would be no effect from the drug taken. Sometimes it could also be fatal.


Never believe in self-medications. It can harm you in a variety of ways. Sometimes one might think they missed the previous dose of medication and might want to take it along with the next dose where they might also have to pop up another pill for certain other health issue. This could lead to drug interaction and could land up being fatal.


Strict rules need to be enforced by the law and government where the pharmacies should never provide medications without the doctor’s prescriptions. Even the people need to be more responsible where they don’t buy the medications without the doctor’s prescription. To lead a happy and healthy life one should safe guard not just the health but also the way in which the medications are taken as prescribed.


Prevent over the counter and lead a safe life.
