Can you name all of the medications you are taking? Do you know what doses you are taking and what the medicine is for?
Having a list of all your medicines in one place also helps your physician, pharmacist, hospital, or other healthcare workers take better care of you.
Print a copy of a form that will help you keep track of all of your medications. List all of the medications you currently take, including herbals, over-the-counter, and prescription medications. Also list what drug store you use and any drug or food allergies you have.
