Medication Considerations  

Store your medications in a sealed, light resistant container to maintain maximum potency. Be sure to follow any special storage instructions listed on your prescription bottle or container, such as “refrigerate” “do not freeze” “protect from light” or “keep in a cool place”. Protect all medications from excessive humidity.

Always tell your Dr everything that is wrong as the more information your Dr has, the more effective will be your treatment.

Ensure that each Dr you see is aware of all medications you use including over the counter medication.

Keep a record of any bad reaction you have had to a medication.

Fill each prescription you are given. If you do not fill a prescription, make sure your Dr knows you are not taking the medication.

Follow the label instructions exactly. If you have any questions call your Dr or pharmacist.

Report any unusual symptoms that develop after taking medication.

Do not save unused medication for future use unless you have consulted your Dr. Dispose of unused medication by flushing it down the toilet.

Do not share your medication with anyone. Your prescription was written for you and only you.
