    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because natural remedies typically have fewer side effects compared to synthetic medications.

However, it is important to note that some individuals may still experience side effects from natural remedies, although they are generally less common and less severe compared to pharmaceutical drugs.

    B. Sub-lingually
    Explanation
    Sub-lingually refers to the method of placing medicine under the tongue. This route of administration is commonly used for angina, a heart condition. Placing medication under the tongue allows for faster absorption into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system. This method is often preferred for medications that need to act quickly, as it allows for rapid onset of action.

    A. True
    Explanation
    Instillation administration refers to the method of delivering a liquid medication into the eyes, ears, or nose. This method is commonly used for medications that need to directly target these specific areas. Therefore, the statement that instillation administration is when the medicine is a liquid and dispensed into the eyes, ears, or nose is true.

    The statement is true because the majority of prescriptions are issued by the National Health Service (NHS), which is a publicly funded healthcare system in the UK. However, there are instances where private or hospital prescriptions may be used instead.

      25 degrees

    • D.

      26 degrees

    Correct Answer
    C. 25 degrees
    Explanation
    Medicines need to be stored correctly to maintain their effectiveness and ensure patient safety. Most medicines are sensitive to temperature and should be stored in a controlled environment. A temperature of 25 degrees Celsius is considered optimal for storing medicines as it helps to maintain their stability and prevent degradation. Higher temperatures can accelerate chemical reactions and cause the breakdown of active ingredients, while lower temperatures may affect the solubility and effectiveness of certain medicines. Therefore, a dedicated room with a temperature of 25 degrees Celsius is ideal for storing medicines.
