Should I keep track of the medications I am taking?
You should write down each of the medicines you’re taking and their doses and keep that list with you. Whenever you see any physician, you can show her or him the list to avoid the possibility of any new prescriptions or other recommendations interfering or adversely interacting with any of your current medicines. Your physician, the nurses involved in your care, and the pharmacist who fills your prescriptions should all be able to tell if any drugs you are taking are interacting in the wrong way. It is always a good idea when being prescribed new medicine to ask your doctor to go over the medicines that have already been prescribed for you, along with any herbal products you may take.
