Don't take medicine longer than what was prescribed!

I know death is inevitable but in the death of my friend's father it could have been avoided . His father's medicine for diabetes which should be taken no more than 3 months was taken for more than a year. This resulted to the collapse of his liver... and eventually his death.  Some friends suggested to take legal action against the doctor but the family is not agreeable to file an actos lawsuit  considering some failure on their part. 

The incident reminded me with the Bible  verse  in Hosea 4:6 " Because of lack of Knowledge, people perish". It also reminded me to  keep doctor's prescription (I have the tendency to throw away the paper  after buying the medicine) and strictly follow what's written on the RX.
