5. Drugs Must Be Verified Before Use
This point is very critical. Nothing must be taken for granted when it comes to checking the expiry date of drugs we purchase from the pharmacy, irrespective of any kind of relationship you may have with the dispensing personnel. This writer who had been treating malaria with a particular drug brand had to check for the expiry date only after hearing about the passing of Eric. Risky. The reason being that this writer bought from the same store he had always patronised. Even though the drug still has months away from expiration, such mistakes can be very costly as Eric’s case has proven.
