painkillers, anti-nausea, antibiotics and over-the-counter relief...

when we are ill, in pain or having a difficult time, some medicines are readily available and easy to acquire through your health care professional. Pharmaceuticals are extremely useful in the short term, under the direct care of your physician. The key here is to "get in and get out". with prolonged use dependancy, addiction and abuse may occur. Handle with care. Your doctor or pharmacist will prescribe the duration and quantity. Antibiotics are generally given to be taken until finished, while other meds such as analgesics and anti-inflammitories are on a "as needed, as prescribed" basis. Only take what you need. Return the unused portion to your pharmacy for disposal.
