Some folk like to give their medication a miss. Not a good idea.
The National Pharmacy Association performed a survey which showed that one out of five people think it's beneficial to take a break from their medication. They think it might clear their system out which will do their bodies good. A sort of detox.
This is particularly so if they have more than one condition. This is not a good idea, even dangerous for some, depending on their medical condition. This applies especially to depression, lung conditions and diabetes which can get out of control.
Pharmacists are only too willing to have a chat about concerns and questions. There is much more information set out in the monthly publication All About Health available free from your local chemist. Otherwise go on-line at www.allabouthealth.org.uk.
