A 24 yr old girl started taking spasmo proxyvon,an anti spasmodic,for her menstrual cramps two years ago.She started taking it at the suggestion of a friend and liked it because of the immediate relief it gave,After a point of time,even when she was not in pain and not menstruating, she would consume the medicine.When she started getting irritable when she didnt take the drug.

It is not just the cough syrups and sleeping pills available over the counter that are causing addiction in people the seemingly harmless ones like aspirin,anti-spasmodics and painkillers are doing equal harm.

People take to self medication without realising the danger of getting hooked to the drugs.

Popping an aspirin while having a headache is common,but doing it over a long time could make you an addict.I  have been seeing quite a few such cases in my day to day Clinical practice.

Over-the-counter drugs which people take for common ailments like headache,cramps and sleeplessness could cause addiction if taken without the advice of a registered medical practitioner.

It takes only three days for the system to get addicted to a drug.So any person who has been taking a drug without prescription for three consecutive days is at the risk of getting addicted.

Sometimes the abuse could be extensive and could have damaged the stomach lining,liver and other organs.

The problem gets compounded when unqualified pharmacists behind the counter give people drugs without knowing fully about the effects.More awareness has to be created about over-the- counter drug abuse in India n all over d world.

When prson comes to us after such long self medication, v have to first detoxify d body, coz at dat stage his/her balance of  boshas  is totally hampered. Good herbal combination orally n Pachakarma therapy with Yoga n meditation can be helpfull  for such type of patients.

I request u to all to avoid self medication, always.

Have a healthy life…!!!
