Instant relief - doctor or self medication
August 28, 2009 9:11am CST
In case of small ailments, cough, cold or pain what do you do? Go to the doctor or first try self medications. I try self medications first and when it does not work go to the doctor. But most of time my medications give excellent results. What do you do? Share your views.

I would really opt for self medication when it comes to minor health troubles. But if it a serious one or when the minor trouble doesn't stop i prefer visiting the doctor instead of taking a risk. I'm a reiki healer too i heal myself once in a while. But when my daughter catches cold or falls ill temporarily i prefer the doctor instead of going with grandma tips :)

i do the same way as you do. we know ourselves better than any others including doctors. i often do medications myself. as for doctors' suggestions, i will think before i make a decision to take them. i read books and articles on health care in my spare time so that i can learn something in this field.

Hello Bewitched a good question indeed. For ordinary everyday ailments I usually take the usual medicines I have as stock. Sometimes I give healing to myself. Sometimes I ask the pharmacist to suggest some medicines. But only in case when none works I go to the doctor. But I make it a point to take the prescribed full course. Happy mylotting
