Medication Guide

Our society has this strange notion that every problem can be solved by simply popping a pill. Unfortunately, it doesn't work this way. A lot of problems can be solved with a bare minimum of medication or even none at all. The art of it all is to find the right team, make informed choices for yourself and stick to your guns about it. Nobody else can make you take a medication if you really don't want to, and no one else can order you to stop taking a medication if you really do.

Finding a Physician

There are doctors who are right for you and doctors who are wrong for you. The main difference is in how they want to deal with your problems. Some doctors will deal with almost any kind of problem by pumping you full of pain medication, when what they would best be doing is working to genuinely solve the underlying issue. If your doctor tries to prescribe you things that aren't cures and that aren't going to keep you alive, refuse the medications and switch to a new doctor immediately. You don't need to pay a drug dealer. You need a real doctor who is really out to help you get better over the long term.

Choosing the Right Medication

The simple rule about medications is that they should do as little harm as is humanly possible, they should keep you alive and they should solve a problem without having to take them forever. If you're simply beating back a continuous problem, it might be best to look into lifestyle changes that can also keep the problem in check. Being reliant on medications is an expensive and often unhealthy way to deal with your health issues. Often enough, lifestyle changes can make way more difference, as your body and the way you live your life fix themselves when you add new habits and take away old ones.

Selecting a Pharmacist

A good pharmacist knows what drugs will interact negatively with one another. He or she should also know when a medication isn't really going to help you very much. While doctors know more about the human body than pharmacists do, most doctors only took one semester of pharmacology. What actually goes into your body is the pharmacist's domain, and they're the easiest medical professionals to ask questions of. So make sure yours is very knowledgeable about what they help you to put into your body.
