According to the Chairman, too much Vitamin C in the human body leads to gall bladder stones, kidney stones and pelvic ulcer.

“You know vitamin C is good for the body but its important people should take it moderately, at least only one in a day,” he said.

“But unfortunately some of our patients are taking double or triple dose in a day and one of the side effects of this drug is that it causes pelvic ulcer, which will create other problems for them.

“About 10 of our patients were discovered to have taken the overdose of these drugs. The overdose also causes gall bladder stone and kidney stones.”

Rilwanu further revealed that four COVID-19 patients also tried to self medicate by steaming themselves; they developed hypertension instead.

He urged residents not to self medicate and only take drugs based on a doctor’s prescription.
