Weekly Health Tips

MANAGING MULTIPLE MEDICATIONS

Posted: 04.10.2017
Make sure everyone involved in your care knows all the medications that you are taking. Make a list of all your prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, supplements and herbals. Give a copy to each of your doctors, pharmacists and caregivers. This can greatly reduce the chance of errors and drug interaction problems. So does having just a single pharmacy for all of your prescriptions. The better your pharmacist knows you and your medications, the less chance there will be of a mistake. Talk with your pharmacist about possible side effects, dosages and a plan for scheduling medication (e.g., using pill organizers).
