Today we will be beaming our lights on the usage of drugs, especially the effects of using beyond the prescribed dosage and the damage it causes. Drug abuse is dangerous to human health and also to the illness it is supposed to treat.

Let’s get straight to why going against a prescribed dosage is bad.

  • Excess intake of drugs beyond the prescribed dose place your immune system at risk.
  • The disorder the drug is supposed to cure will become stronger therefore making the drug ineffective.
  • Over-dosage could lead to dizziness and fatigue.
  • Drugs are chemicals and excess intake of it can damage the human internal organs.
  • Since the excess use of drugs has broken down such individual defence systems such individual will become easily open to the attack of various illnesses.
  • It could lead to the individual being hospitalised.
  • Excess use of drugs could lead to stroke, seizures or death.

 

Conclusion, for every drug you buy the manufactures always have a prescribed dose written on the pack or in a leaflet inside the pack, this dosage routine has been tested to suit to suit the human body system and after the dosage it is often written that “if you don’t get better after 3 days see a doctor”.

Therefore, see that you follow their prescribed dosage instead of increasing it and if you don’t get better see a doctor.
