Drugs and You

Medicine

How to Get Medicine

Though some Doctors will say certain words such as 'Drug' but when they say this they don't mean Actual drugs like Heroine or Marijuana and stuff like that. What Doctors really mean is Medicine. Medicine is proscribed to you. So A doctor can analyze What your taking and how much you are taking. if you take Medicine that isn't proscribed like ibuprofen, or aspirin its okay, just tell your doctor first. Also don't take Medicine like that just to take it. Make sure you only take it when you are having a headache or any other body pains.
