Using Medications Safely - Taking prescribed drugs

Whatever be your age or condition, you must follow these basic rules while taking your medications/drugs.

  • Advise your physician about any over-the-counter drugs you are taking (including any supplements or herbal medicines). This is because nonprescription drugs can cause serious reactions when mixed with prescription drugs.
  • Read labels carefully. Know about the potential side effects and dietary restrictions if any.
  • Follow instructions carefully as advised by your physician.
  • Do not stop taking a prescribed drug as soon as the symptoms are relieved. Take your medication for the entire length of the time prescribed.
  • Keep a record of all the medications you are taking on a daily basis and if any allergies caused by them.
  • Inform your physician of side effects.
  • Have prescriptions filled at one pharmacy. It helps you avoid problems with drug interactions.
  • Properly store medications and drugs. Most of them require a dry, secure place at room temperature and some require refrigeration. Keep your medications out of direct sunlight.
  • Discard outdated medications/drugs. Never take leftover medicine.
  • Keep drugs and medications safely away from the reach of children.
  • Keep medicines in their original containers.
  • If you have trouble opening a container, seek help with your pharmacist.
  • Don't lend or share prescription drugs. What can help you might harm others.
  • Don't take a medication in the dark.
  • Avoid mixing medications and alcohol.
  • Prescription drugs or diet pills can be effective but prescriptions diet pills can also cause some complications.
