You must be thinking that I'm crazy. Sick and still thinking of saving money ???!!!
Going to consult a doctor is so expensive nowadays. For small sickness such as common flu, common cough, slight fever etc. you can just get the medicine from pharmacy. You are paying lesser as you dont have to pay consultancy fees. However, you have to be very careful and have some knowledge on medicines is essential. Most importantly you must know your body, your health, your habit well.
On your spare time, read more about medicines. Understand their benefiting effects as well as side effects (I'm not asking you to be a doctor ok). Eg, Mucosolvan is for treatment of productive cough and loosening phlegm. So, when you are coughing with phlegm, you know you can get it from your pharmacy. Ask pharmacist for opinion and double confirm before your purchase.
Trust me, you can realy save some money. However, I have to STRESS that you must read up and know more. You have to consult a doctor if your symptom is not towards common sickness.
