Half of the 3.2 billon Rxs dispensed annually are not taken as prescribed.
Are you surprised by this fact?
Man is different for other “animals” due to our ability to rationalize-defined as ‘attempt to explain or justify (one’s own or another’s behavior or attitude) with logical, plausible reasons, even if these are not true or appropriate’.
So why is the above statistic not surprising? My take-here goes:
“I’ll save the remainder for next time I’ve the same thing.”
“Feel better so really do not need the ‘over kill.”
“I’ll save and use for others when the get the same thing or catch ‘what I got.”
FIND OUT! When handed a prescription (chemicals to put into your body for ‘good’) ask do I really need this? Ask under what circumstances, if any, can I stop before finishing all the pills? Some many viral infections resolve wither or not on antibiotics.
