When to ask your doctor about western medicine

When your doctor recommends western medicine for your condition, ask them if you need any further information.

If your doctor says yes, they will give you a prescription.

Ask your doctor to tell you about their experience treating western medicine patients.

The doctor will often tell you how it works and the treatments they have been using.

If you do not know what western medicine is, ask your pharmacist.

If a pharmacist says no, they may say they do not recommend western medicine because it is not safe for people with certain medical conditions.

Your doctor will likely refer you to a specialist in the field.
