      There are definitely some drugs that I would have a good guess at! I used to work in community pharmacy a few years ago and you definitely notice unique things about how people look which can be directly attributed to the medication they are taking! Most drugs, however, you would never know the person is taking.

      I think it would depend on what they were taking and how long for. I’ve not had any experience in this though so i would probably be pretty clueless.
