I'm prone to colds if the weather is a bit cold, or dusty. I would sneeze and if it's late for medication it would lead to colds. Therefore I should take my medicine as soon as possible. I use to take Prednisone or CTM in that case, and the symptoms of colds would disappear. Those medicines have been my 'friends' since I was a child. Well, I don't take those medicines everyday, but only when I feel I'm going to get colds. But I think...I'm quite dependent on those medicines. I realize that being dependent on medicines can be harmful. But, I have no choice. What about you? Are you depended on certain medicine?

I am not. I drink ginger tea with milk or lemon eveyday to prevent colds and flu, etc. (not advisable for pregnant and persons with heart ailment)

Are you prone to flu or colds? However when you get colds and flu, do you take medicine rather than the ginger tea with lemon?

I seldom will take medicine as long as it is necessary. As I know every medicine will have its own side effects. If it is not a serious case, I want to recover by myself.

That's right. Do you drink homemade remedies for preventing colds or flue? Or you seldom suffer from those illness?

@Ayuriny No, I don't drink homemade remedies. When I have a cold, I try to drink more water and if possible, have a good sleep. The situation will be better.

@youless Yeah, I know having a good sleep is the best treatment for colds. But I just can't have it. I have to be at school in the morning till late in the afternoon. Meanwhile I get colds mostly in the morning. ....Lol.

No, but I am dependent on multi vitamin supplement. There had been studies proved that being dependent on medicines might do more harm than good. If I am suffering from fever, I stay away from medicines, I prefer the natural way to treat it.
