Giving or receiving medicine in a dream is a very powerful experience.

It is a cure to problems known and sometimes unknown.

This is a very spiritual symbol of “healing guides” attending to the dreamer during sleep.

Vision: Taking good-tasting medicine: you are hoping to get a large sum of money—but that isn’t going to happen. Taking bitter medicine is a reminder that success may not come easily, because “nothing is for nothing.” Giving medicine to another: you will help someone with advice and action.

Depth Psychology: Medicine is either a wonderful symbol stating that your body’s capacity for healing has been activated, or it is a hint that you may soon have to swallow “a bitter pill,” depending of the rest of the images in the dream.

(Drug; Inkwell) Taking medicine in a dream means correcting oneself, or it could mean fulfilling one’s religious obligations. Ifone takes a medicine for his illness in a dream, it means that he will correct his conduct.

If it denotes knowledge in the dream, it means that he will benefit from what he learns and accepts the good advice.

If one refuses to take his medicine in the dream, it means that he will deviate from the path of his Lord and shift his interests to his allotment or luck in this world. Medicine in a dream also denotes an inkwell. Licking medicine with one’s index finger in a dream means proclaiming the truth, or it could mean profits from the direction the index finger is pointing at in the dream. Swallowing medicinal powder means greed, self-absorption, reclusion and withdrawal. Taking liquid medicine orally means profits. Swallowing pills in a dream means obliging a sinner to correct himself, to repent, or to go on the straight path. It also could mean caring to teach an ignorant person.

If a woman applies a medicinal make-up in a dream, it represents her menstruation. As for an unwed girl, it means marriage, and for a barren woman, it means a child. Inserting a suppository into the rectum in a dream means spying or eavesdropping.

To take a laxative in a dream means attempting to correct one’s religious devotion, or it could mean washing one’s body from impurities.

The success of one’s attempt depends on the potency of his medicine. Seeking good health in a dream means trying to amend one’s life for the better.

The same meaning applies if one sees himself using an ointment for his eyes.

A yellow colored medicine in a dream means illness.

A laxative in a dream means a cure for a sick person and a warning for a healthy person to correct himself.

A bad tasting medicine in a dream means a fever followed by a chill. Good tasting medicine in a dream is beneficial for rich people, though bad for poor people. Interpreting a cure with a medicine in a dream is not like interpreting recovering without a medicine.

Medicine administered to you by a doctor may point to a reliance on others to sort out your problems for you, rather than finding your own solutions.

If the medicine comes in the shape of a pill, are you finding something hard to swallow in waking life? Generally though dreams where you are given a dose of medicine, especially if it tastes bitter, are good and suggest a positive turn of events. Paradoxically to administer tablets to someone else suggests that you are the cause of distress or pain to that person.
