Do you need going to the doctor for a simple taken cold? In the most cases, a lot of people take medicament without prescription, and the most worrying is the fact that some people take a medicine because instead of consulting to the doctor, they ask their relatives or friends who as for them it was well the medical prescription, they think that they can advise to take.
Evidently that not all the people have similar illnesses; what a medication is good for one, it is possible that for the others it entails side effects. It is true that some pills are good for all, because the doctors prescribe to a large number of people, but you are not a doctor, and you cannot prescribe to yourself and less to your neighbor, friend or relative, unless you hate them.
Don’t take the risk of finishing at the Intensive Care Unit, because somebody told you to take this or that pill. The best is going to the doctor, because if you take some wrong pills, advised by your neighbor, friend or familiar you can finish sicker than you were.
