You can avoid harmful interactions by telling your doctor about all the medications and supplements you use: over-the-counter, prescription and herbal.
A medication list can help you remember and record all the medicines and supplements you are taking. A medication list is particularly helpful to a hospital. By sharing this list when you are at the hospital, you can help prevent medication errors. Knowing what medications you are taking helps the hospital ensure that you get the right medications, at the right dose, without interactions with your other medicines.
Since your medicines may change, it is very important to keep the list up-to-date and keep it with you at all times.
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions or concerns about your medications.
