Is it alright to share my previous medication if a friend of mine contracted the same STD that I had before?

Treatment Regimen

No. Despite being caused by the same causative microorganism, the manifestation of the disease in one body may vary from its presentation in another – taking likewise into consideration the severity and extent of its proliferation. Standard treatment guidelines provide the recommended treatment regimen for each specific situation, and it is by no means, or instead for most of the time, same for two different instances. Always advise your family and friends to consult a physician instead of self-medicating to avoid causing further harm to your body due to the improper use of certain medications.
