Below we have mentioned a few important questions to ask your family doctor. Take a look.
- Is medication the best way to treat illness?
Doctors usually say that unless they are convinced that medication is the best approach to treat your child they wouldn’t prescribe one. Also, if the child is young there may be side effects or other risks involved in medication; hence your family doctor will rather provide him what is known as symptom relief instead of medications.
- Are antibiotics the best approach in treating a cold?
No, as antibiotics cannot kill viruses, hence viral infections cannot be treated with antibiotics only. Common diseases like cold, ear infection, bronchitis, cough, and even pneumonia will not require antibiotics. There are quite a few other effective immunization programs, these days, to treat bacterial infections.
- ADHD can only be treated by medication?
Your family physician will tell you that this is not true at all as there are a variety of approaches available in treating ADHD. What is most important is that it should be accurately diagnosed and then treated with utmost love and care for your child to overcome the situation with ease.
