Overmedication: Are people relying too much on medicine?



Advocate: I think some people are relying too much on medication and there are the following two major reasons and solutions.


@: some people see several doctors.

In these cases, the solution is to tell the each doctor that you see different doctors and what kind of medications they prescribe so that you can avoid getting same kind of medications and getting overmedicated without noticing.

A: some patients or doctors have fear of discontinuing medication.

in these cases, the solution is to reduce the doses gradually and discontinue use of medication last of all.
