Relying on medicines prescribed by medically unqualified people can be harmful. Interpretations of symptoms and diagnosis are tasks carried out by professionals. Without proper diagnosis, it is difficult to tell what ailment one is suffering from. So, the self-prescribed drug may fail to act on the problem. What’s worse, it could aggravate the condition, or spark off allergies and other problems. Moreover, individuals vary in their sensitivity to drugs. So, only a doctor can decide the right drug and the right dosage for a person.
