Doctor Answers (2) on Medical myths
I can understand your concern.
The most common one is that "doctor is a merchant of death and just wants to make money by prescribing loads of medicines"
When a medicine is prescribed, we tell you to take it for "n" number of days because thats what is the course duration.
Most people think i'm fwlling better now, why should i take the medixines. Well if patients do such practises, its its only going to be bad for them. The bacteria would become resistant to common antibiotics because of not adhereing to a full course of antibiotics and to fight such resistant bacterias, we will have to prescribe even stronger antibiotics which are naturally more expensive.
