The Gospel is the most powerful medicine ever introduced.
It promises eternal life, for gawds sake!
The problem with medicines is in their delivery. Too often, too much, too strong, too weak, not enough, irritation, allergy, complications, side effects etc. Pharmacists call some of these ‘problems with compliance’. Whichever, it results in the therapy going haywire, and the patient not getting better.
And how the patients complain: Nag, nag, nag, nag ,nag, all the live long day!
To get the right prescription, you need the right doctor, and you also need the right patient.
Your doctor should be devoted to their art, and their patients, well qualified, well read, in good standing with their colleagues, have lots of experience, and a good record of success. Don’t stand for anything less!
You, the patient, must be honest with your symptoms, give a good account of your previous therapies, mention your allergies, and, the most difficult bit, have complete trust in your doctor.
If all of the above are fulfilled, your prescription will be a blessing to you.
But remember, keep taking the tablets, don’t give up halfway through the course. Oh, and avoid counterfeits too.
