      Great question! This is a two-part solution. First, when people feel ill, they need to go to the doctors less. There are many useful over-the-counter medications that can help. Secondly, doctors should prescribe them less. However, doctors just want people to get better, so really each person should take the care into their own hands by using the over-the-counter medication and avoid seeing the doctors for minor ailments.
