Do you prefer self medication? Though most of us are aware of its danger, we are not avoiding this. This may be due to the facts like lack of time to go the doctor or lack of money etc,. What about you?

I am guilty of not seeing my doctor when I sometimes fall sick. It is mainly because I do not have enough time. And sometimes I find that when I do make an appointment with the doctor they just prescribe medication which I could have purchased over the counter at the pharmacy, therefore the whole process being a complete waste of time! In serious issues though, I do try and see a medical specialist.

Thanks for sharing your ideas and stand. Because of our situation we are forced to take such medicines ourselves.

You are making the assumption that a doctor knows more than you do about everything. I do not think that docros are well trained in nutrition or that docors are right about everything. On a lot of things i fell that i know as much about a subject as does my doctor.

Very interesting.I think you are well versed with self medication. But I don't think as I know more than a doctor. Thanks for your participation.
