Doctors warn patients on consequences of over-medicating

If you're spending the day sick in bed, be careful what you take to fight the flu. 

Many times people take too much of a good thing and over-medicate. 

It's easy to overdo it without realizing the serious and sometimes fatal consequences. 

Also, sometimes people think it's OK to take herbal medications when they have already taken over-the-counter drugs. 

Doctors said these too can cause dangerous effects if taken in combination.
