Keeping a well stocked medicine cabinet at home can help treat many minor ailments. Colds, coughs, indigestion and many other complaints can all be treated with medicines that are available over the counter.
Your pharmacist can advise on what you might find useful to keep in your medicine cabinet. Always follow the instructions on the medicine label and consult your doctor if the illness is continuous or becomes more severe.
