For me, self-medication is important when you know that the symptoms you have are known to be cured by the medicine you have at hand. Sometimes, you need to self-medicate like using the natural herbs, etc. How about you, what are your views on this? Please share! Thanks.

For me self medication is fine but we have to be careful. We the sickness is not cured well, we might make it worst. I believe most of the time, self medication comes from traditional herbs. At times traditional herbs really helps but took take a longer time to get well

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, nicregi. You have a point there, sometimes we unintentionally make it worst, then that means, we have to subject ourselves to the correct medication from a certified doctor.

I think it is okay for very small things only. I do not recommend that anyone does it for any bigger issues, that can be very dangerous!

Thank you for replying, puccagirl! Yeah, I understand what you mean, if it's really a life-threatening situation, it would be best to take it to the hands of a doctor or hospital. Cheers!
