Last night i went to medical store for buying some medicine. I have the paper on which doctor suggest me medicine. There was great rush there in front of shop so i wait until they listen to me. when i was trying to get medicine then i see many people get medicine by only telling names of medicine or some telling their problem to store staff and get medicine from them. I was amazed that how people playing with their lives and does not care about them selves. All are doing self medication. On the other hand when i search why people do so because doctors cost too much and they write medical tests which also cost much so a poor people go to medical store for getting treatment rather than consult doctor.
Sometimes its fine when you save a few bucks and don't go to the doctor but it can be proved deadly if you take the wrong pills! better take the doc's advice!
