Over the Counter Medication - Is it wise?

OTC medicines are quite freely available in India and as such many people find it quite convenient to purchase medicines on an SOS basis - basically a quick fix. However, is it the wisest thing to do?

We need to understand that all medicines have an effect on our bodies. Unless we are really educated about medicines and interactions of various medicines, we may be doing unnecessary harm to ourselves by taking them without proper medical advice. In addition, antibiotics if taken without supervision can turn resistant and we may not be able to use them when we actually need them.

It is also important to know that pharmacists that dispense medicines or sell medicines would not know all the effects and side effects of the medicine.

It is always better to seek medical opinion from a doctor before we purchase medicines that we use for ourselves or a loved one.
