Managing Medications

Prescribed medications come in several forms and are taken in different ways. Even though they are meant to improve health, taking medications the wrong way can be dangerous. It is important to use medications as directed by your health care provider.

Here are six ways to help you better manage your medicine(s).
  • Make sure your doctor knows all the medications you’re taking and if you have any allergies.
  • Tell your doctor if you are taking vitamins and/or herbal supplements.
  • Read the label on each medication you are taking to learn the side effects and how to properly administer the medication.
  • Have a routine for taking your medications. Consider using a weekly pill box to help you stay on track.
  • If you have trouble opening your medications, talk to your pharmacist about bottles that are easier to open.
  • Keep all your medications in a safe and secure place.
