Commonly Dispensed Medications
Hi migrant workers!
I believe it has been many months we have been providing medications for you. While we are happy to have provided this service to you, we are also concerned on how you have been either taking or using the medications. Do take note of the advice below with regards to the common medications that we have been dispensing t you.
Drowsy Medications There are some medications that may cause you to become sleepy. Please make sure that you are not driving or operating any machinery when you are taking drowsy medications. Some examples are:
Chlorpheniramine tablets, Fedac tablets
Antibiotic Medications Antibiotic medications will help to kill the bad bacteria in your body. It is important to complete the whole course of antibiotic medications to ensure that all the bad bacteria are killed. If the course is not completed, the bad bacteria might develop resistance. Please remember to finish your antibiotic medications as instructed by the doctor.
Steroid Creams Some doctors will prescribe you creams containing steroids like Hydrocortisone, Bethamethasone, Clobetasol, Zaricort and Gentrisone creams. Please remember to apply the cream THINLY onto the affected area. Do not put too much of the steroid cream as this will result in harmful skin effects.
