After doing all the hard work in searching for a doctor come the next step of the medications that the doctor would prescribe to you if a problem comes to the surface.
It has come into notice that in our part of the world people tend to eat any medicine that is prescribed to them without knowing what it cures or what our its effects or in a matter of fact what our its side effects.
When we talk of Smart patients these sorts of mistakes our avoided by them, they are very careful and in a way inquisitive about the medicine prescribed to them. They want to gather enough information before actually using the medicine.
A Smart Patient when prescribed a medication would ask questions about it; so that they could be save from the mishaps that could be caused such as, taking the wrong medication or wrong dose. They don’t want to miss out the preventions that are necessary.
To reassure, Smart Patients build up a friendship with the Pharmacist from which he or she take their medications, they have knowledge about the medicines and it is for free as well. They would help you to recheck if the medicines you are purchasing are right.
Be careful when taking medication over the counter because sometimes we don’t know about the medicine and taking consultation from someone who has nothing to do with medicine could be quite dangerous.
When a Smart Patient would purchase the medication over the counter he would make sure that he or she goes to the same pharmacy first of all from where they purchase the medicines regularly and second they would fill the pharmacist with information so that the right medication is purchased.
So, be wise when taking medicine because even one mistake can be dangerous!
