Taking medicine can be an everyday thing for some people. But for some of us, the prospect of taking pills makes us nervous due to a fear of side-effects or maybe something as simple as a general nervousness about popping pills. I am definitely in the latter group as I certainly do not enjoy taking medicine for every little pain that comes along. But even I realize that once in a while a person has no choice when the pain gets so bad, and the only sensible option then is to swallow a pill. Although I personally always read the precautions on the label whenever I have to take medicine to be sure that I am doing it in the correct way and to make sure I get the benefits rather than some bad side-effects.
Playing by the rules
I am a great believer in respecting the advice of my doctor with regard to using any kind of medicine. Doing so is likely to ensure that I stay out of trouble and avoid the negative effects drugs can have no the human body. For example my doctor recommended that I take Co-Codamol 30/500 mg for the period pains I experience every month. Although I can buy Co-Codamol online with no prescription quite easily I try to avoid doing so unless I really need it. For example, I only take it when I feel that my pain is really effecting my everyday life and stopping me in my daily activities or when it gets unbearable.
Better safe than sorry
The side-effects I read on the co-codamol package really gave me the shivers. I do not want any of them, since some appear quite severe. Of course, I do not enjoy pain so there is the trade-off. Also, I don’t like the thought of getting addicted to any medicine, especially if we’re talking about painkillers. Getting my body used to them will only lead to an increase in the dosage for it to have the same expected effect, or so I believe.
