  Continued 7) Salvarsan -- The Cure for Lust. Chances are, Salvarsan didn't make your list of most important drugs. But historians Swann and Greenberg say it belongs in the club. If possible, take medicines while standing or sitting up. Also, try to drink a glass of liquid each time you take a medicine. If you vomit and can see the medicine in the vomit, you will need to take the medicine again.

I remember what my professor once told me: “If you really want to know what you want in life, you should take up medicine,” and when I asked her why, she told me that medicine will give you the chance to explore yourself for five to seven years.   As my original post, '15 tips on what to do if you want to quit medicine', has been getting a spike in views, I've decided to update it - check out my latest advice on what to do when you.

  Medicine can be exciting and exhausting, and you'll only really know if it's for you once you've started working. Wanting to study medicine, studying medicine, and practising medicine .   My husband would ask me, “Honey, did you take your meds?” in the most loving, sweetest voice he possibly could and I in return would absolutely blow up at him.
