Japan Health Handbook, M. M. Maruyama et al., Kodansh International, pp 257-261, 1998.


Before reading the above list, please consider the following comments received from a trusted Moslem medical doctor living in Japan about the nonprescription drugs

1- They are too weak and too expensive (not covered by insurance).
2- Going to clinic and receiving full examination and medication may be cheaper, safer and faster than searching for these medications as many of them are not easy to find.
3- Many people underestimate their symptoms and the disease may deteriorate if they did not take the correct treatment from the beginning.

a simple head ache or fever can be just like a warning light of the car that is about to go into reserve.
