Valuable information on Drugs

In the older days, when humans suffered from any disease or wound, they would simply let it be the way it is because they did not know how to cure it back and they did not know anything about drugs; this was also the reason why the death rate was also high in those times. Whether it was soldiers who got wounded in the wars or it was women who got pregnant, five out of ten cases would definitely suffer from death.
However with the passage of time, humans started to discover various ways through which they could treat certain diseases and cure wounds. First they started their research from home kitchens to find products that would speed up the process of healing then they did extensive study on herbs which are helpful when one is suffering from ailments. Afterwards, as soon as the elements from the periodic table were discovered, the doctors or medical practitioners started to make drugs out of these elements in laboratories. Whenever a new drug was formed from components that could be beneficial for the human body, it would be first tested on animals or plants and when the desired result would be obtained then that drug would be sold in the market.
Unless you are a medical practitioner, you should not take any drug without the consent of a licensed doctor. No matter how serious your condition gets or how much information you have about any drug; you should first get a check up from the doctor and then when he or she gives you the prescribed drugs only then you should eat them. The reason behind this is that drugs are very strong chemical substances and they have side effects; for example, people get addicted to drug easily. With the consent of a doctor, you will be able to take the drugs in the right amount and at the right time to avoid side effects.
