But, basically, the incompatibility of drugs interferes. Very often there are incompatible with antibiotics. They should not be without the need to combine with antipyretics, hypnotics, antihistamines.

Misconception 2. Drugs are equally valid for all people.

There are so-called antacids - vikalin, vikair, magnesium oxide, over which should be timed to the moment when the stomach empties, and hydrochloric acid continues to stand out, that is an hour or two after eating.

Misconception 6. Drugs from manufacturers better.

Many drugs have the same therapeutic basis, but are marketed under different names. They are called drug-synonymous. Antipyretic paracetamol is sold as Panadol, Tylenol, efferalgan. Allergy medication tavegil is nothing like Clemastine, and known high blood pressure clonidine produced under the names gemiton, katapresan and hlorfazolin.
