if you fall sick you go to doctor, he prescribes you some medicine you simply buy that medicine take it for your cure(off course it cures) here it is, do you ever thought of getting awareness about what kind of medicine you are taking or simply wanna know what effect it has on your body? i know many of you will say no aren't you?

Its right that when we feel sick,we rush to the doctor to get ourselves checked up and then we take medicine as per the prescription..Though we are aware about our health,nevertheless we do not search what medicine is right for the sufferer..The doctor prescribes and we get satisfied..It is our duty to know the utility of medicine or we should make question about the medicine..we should not hesitate.If we make this a habit,we will of course be responded positively.

Yes, of course I worry about what is in the medicine. I don't like putting anything into my body that I don't know that much about. I always try to use home remedies first, because at least I know they are natural and are not going to hurt me. I hate going to the Dr. or to the hospital for that matter...I mean who does?

I very rarely get prescription medicine. Most of the time I have simple illnesses for which I can buy over-the-counter medicine for. During the time I had to take some serious medicine for some serious illness I did take time to read the paper that came along with the medicine package but not out of interest but simply boredom. I guess I am too trusting of doctors that I do what they say and take what they tell me to.

I can usually trust my doctor for the medicine prescribed. I do try to read the information about the medicine provided by the pharmacy. It is always a good precaution to know what you are taking and why.
