Guidelines for Proper Medication Use
Medications to help your health can actually do harm if handled improperly. This video discusses the steps to take to ensure correct medication usage.
Each time you go to a doctor, bring every medication you take. This includes prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs, and even vitamin and herbal supplements. By informing your physicians of your current usage, they can help you avoid duplicating your prescriptions. Transparency among your doctors can also prevent the mixing of drugs that could have potentially dangerous side effects. When given a new prescription, inquire as to its benefits. By knowing how a medication should help you, you can better note unusual complications from it.
