I have been observing that everytime one visits Dr for treatment, one gets a long list of medicines in this country with short courses. Definately the medicines do not get exhausted and need to be thrown away as next time one is bound to get replacement. This is how the costs of Insurance and medical facilities in this part of world are much higher than countries like India (where medicines are used till they get exhausted). Why is that people in UAE waste these much important resources so easily? Why is that the medicines are packaged in different portions which are sufficient enough for given prescription only?
