The Khan’s had returned home at midnight, from a 7 day trip to a neighboring state, where they had indulged in all kinds of adventure sports ranging from bungee jumping to scuba diving! No wonder the Khan’s were a bunch of sore shoulders and stiff joints, but what they hadn’t bargained for was their youngest son falling sick upon reaching home.
As it was midnight, the Khan’s could not go to a doctor and since it was just a mild fever they decided to not go to the hospital, but on checking their medicine cabinet, Mrs. Khan found that they were out of crocin, the popular drug used to treat mild fevers and flu’s. The helpless Khan’s spent a sleepless night, keeping a watch on their son’s increasing fever… this could well have been avoided had the khan’s known about some must-have medicines for their cabinet!
We all buy strips and strips of tablets, bottles of syrups and end up storing them in our medicine cabinet, where they lie till their expiration date runs out! While we buy all kinds of medicines for our cough’s, cold’s, fever’s and flu’s, we never know the right medicine to buy; we end up buying all kinds of medicines and in the process miss out on the most needed medicines, as seen in the case of the Khan’s.
All of this can be handled in a better and faster way, if we just had a list of some of the must-have medicines in our medicinal cabinet, while adults are advised to keep Gelusil - acidity, Domstol - nausea and vomiting, ORS (Oral rehydration salts) – Dehydration, Allegra - various allergies and Silverex – Mild burns, for their medical conditions. Similarly parents of children are advised to keep Benadryl - Cough, Crocin, Paracetamol- Mild fevers and Otrivin – Nasal drops to clear congestion in their medicinal cabinets as medicines to treat commonly occurring conditions in their children.
While the above mentioned medicines are over the counter medicines, it would be advisable to consult the doctor before administering them to yourself or your children. Also please do remember to never self- medicate and always to check with the doctor before hand.
