Family doctor Tatiana Romanenko told which medications should always be carried with you.
So, the expert noted that in the presence of chronic diseases, you must have an ambulance with you.
“You need to have means to reduce pressure, if you have heart problems it would be nice to have a blister with nitroglycerin in your purse. You should have alcohol wipes or sanitizers with you when you cannot wash your hands,”the doctor said to Sputnik.
Speaking about painkillers, Romanenko stressed that it is not necessary to have them with you, since, for example, a headache is not included in the list of situations requiring surgical intervention.
“It's another matter if you suffer from migraines. Anti-migraine drugs should be with you, because the sooner we start to stop the attack, the more effective it will be,”the doctor emphasized.
It is best to have your own medications with you, however, in the case when they were not at hand and you had to contact your colleagues at work, it is important to make sure that the medicine has not expired, and also that this is the necessary medicine.
