Pastillas Las Justas se internacionaliza. Ya el pasado octubre la pudieron conocer los expertos en Salud de la Oficina Europea de Organizaciones de Consumidores (BEUC), una organización paraguas que agrupa a más de cuarenta organizaciones de consumidores de todo el continente. Y este próximo mes de junio la campaña será presentada en un seminario internacional, organizado por el grupo Euroconsumers, que tendrá lugar en Bruselas. Euroconsumers es un grupo formado, además de OCU, por organizaciones de consumidores de Bélgica (Test-Achats/Test-Aankoop), Brasil (Proteste), Italia (Altroconsumo) y Portugal (Deco Proteste). 

Aprovechamos para compartir la traducción al inglés de nuestras "7 Reglas":

No medication is 100 % risk-free, and mistakes and improper use are common, leading to adverse effects on people’s health. But safety of drugs doesn’t just depend on regulators, health professionals or drug companies. It’s also in your hands.

Get involved in your own health care and make sure you’re making the best use of your drugs by learning these seven rules.

7 RULES for a safer use of medicines

1. Know your medication. From time to time, go over the pills you take. Do it with the doctor, nurse or pharmacist you feel most comfortable with.

2. Give non-pharmacological management a chance. Before starting on a new treatment, check for pillsfree alternatives and make sure the medication is really necessary.

3. Only take the pills you really need. Stopping the use of unnecessary drugs is just as important as taking the ones you really need.

4. No medication is for life. A medication you need now may not be necessary later, and could even become detrimental to your health.

5. Make changes gradually. If your condition allows it, when starting on several drugs at the same time, it’s better to start with one first and later add another, using the smallest doses possible.

6. There is no such thing as a risk-free medicine. If you take many drugs or if you’ve recently started to use a new one, any new symptoms you notice could be an adverse effect.

7. New drugs aren’t necessarily better. Because they are better known, drugs that have been on the market longer tend to be safer than newer ones.
