What are self-care pharmaceuticals?
Self-care is a concept that covers what people do to recover from illness, relieve symptoms or promote health. Self-care is part of maintaining good health, and it includes independent use of pharmaceuticals. Self-care is recommended in cases where contact with a physician is not considered necessary.
When is self-care recommended?
Self-care and use of self-care pharmaceuticals are recommended for minor, temporary symptoms. If symptoms are not improved or alleviated within a relatively short period of time, it is reasonable to suspect the wrong choice of treatment or incorrect use of the self-care pharmaceutical. In this case the patient should be referred to a physician.
Self-care and counseling in connection with self-care pharmaceuticals is the core business of the pharmacy. In self-care, counseling begins with ensuring that the pharmaceutical is properly selected for the symptom.
