How to deduct the medical expenses, like co payment, prescriptions, dental expenses, for self employed? Note: They are not premiums.

You cannot claim your medical expenses other than health insurance premiums as self-employed health insurance deductions on line 29 of form 1040.

Medical expenses can be claimed as an itemized deduction on Schedule A (in the Personal tab of TurboTax self-Employed).
