While it is always advisable to let the body heal itself there are many instances when a person is forced to take medicines or supplements. Often the diet of a person will not contain the required nutrients, and it is advisable to take supplements. Those targetted for organized stalking find it difficult to shop for fresh food and vegetables, and in this case, the supplements provide the missing nutrients. Though some pharmacies are stocking general items like mosquito repellants, chocolates, in general most supplements, medicines and health care items can be only found in a pharmacy
The number of pharmacies in an area depend to a large extent on the population of the area. Usually areas with a large number of senior citizens and young children will have more pharmacies because they are more likely to require medicines. The medicines available at the pharmacy depend on the nature of the ailment. For example, almost all pharmacies are stocking widely used medicines like crocin, paracetamol, combiflam, ointments like Soframycin. However it is relatively difficult to find a pharmacy stocking diabetes urine test strips, despite enquiring at many pharmacies no one had these urine test strips in stock.
