medications - always follow them

Sometimes in our lives, we tend not to follow advises/orders from our parents. It’s also just like not strictly following the medications prescribed by our doctors when we get sick. There are treatments that are good for 1 to 2 weeks. But as we feel like we’re okay, we tend to stop the medication without knowing that the full benefits of it cannot be actually realized with this kind of attitude. If symptoms still persist, we often blame the doctor or the treatment itself. Are you doing this too? What’s your side?

I follow what my doctors tell me. They're the ones with the degree in Medicine and they know better. And with Thyroid Medications, I can't slack off. I have to do it for myself.

well, you should really do the right thing. most simple diseases get worst when people just self medicate or don't follow the doctor's prescription at all. some also make short cuts for the days that the medication will go through.

Self-Medication is a big no-no... It's responsible self care that should be done.

yes sometimes doctors know best, they're there to prescribed for us to follow. think of the professional fee you've been paying for them. health wise, you'll be risking your own health when you don't strictly follow your medications.

I don't follow the doctor's order correctly. Sometimes I forget to take the medication I have to take. I think we should try to take the medications at the correct time as prescribed for the full benefits of the treatment.
