Why you must take your medicines correctly?

9/25/2008 11:38:00 PM Posted In Edit This

I find many Malaysians seem to neglect their medicines, i.e. not taking them accordingly or improperly. E.g. an antibiotic course of treatment must be finished, yet I always find antibiotic leftovers in the fridge. Many of my family members are asthmatic, but they do not use inhaler to prevent or control exacerbation. Medicines help controlling a disease, inappropriate use can cause:-

1. Recurrence of infections
2. Chronic conditions worsen and uncontrollable
3. Degeneration of body function
4. Increased side-effects
5. And above all, waste of money and efforts!
