Regarding Pain Medication?
I just pulled out my nails after I left the health center at home. The pain reliever is gone, can I buy it at the pharmacy?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
There are various types of pain relievers, some are included in over-the-counter drugs (labeled in green circles), limited over-the-counter drugs (labeled in blue circles), hard drugs (labeled in red circles), and narcotics (labeled in circles with a + sign in the middle). OTC drugs and limited OTC drugs can be purchased without using a prescription from a doctor, but hard drugs and nerkotika should not be purchased without a doctor's prescription. You should reconfirm what pain medication is given by your doctor at the puskesmas, if it is classified as free or limited free, then you can buy it yourself, but if it includes hard drugs or narcotics, you should return to the puskesmas and ask for a copy of a prescription to buy back medication.
If the pain you feel is not too severe, you can use a general pain medication such as paracetamol (included in over-the-counter medicines) that you can buy at any pharmacy.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
