If the drugs of the first group to purchase without a prescription almost impossible (and such sale illegal), drugs from the list can be sold in a pharmacy after a conversation with the pharmacist who asked about the complaint and will warn of possible adverse reactions and contraindications to the funds.
It is important to remember that prescription drugs are not accidentally sold exactly according to the recipe – the potential risk from improper, untimely or defective acceptance may lead to much more serious and unpleasant consequences than the disease itself.

Indeed, using good modern broad-spectrum antibiotic, can quickly remove the symptoms. But the bacteria from the body have not gone away. And as soon as preventing them to live normally and multiply the substance of the leaves before they all died (and this is just 7-10 days), they quickly recovered, but with new properties! They become resistant. And the stronger the drug, the more bacteria, the more difficult it is to cope with it.
Therefore, despite the fact that many drugs can be bought in the pharmacy, nevertheless it is advisable to consult a doctor. If this is not possible - very carefully read the instructions or ask the pharmacist.
