Questions to Ask About Your Medicines
It's important to know as much as possible about the medicines you're taking. Here are some examples of questions you might ask your doctor or pharmacist:
What can you tell me about this medicine?
Why am I taking it?
When and how do I take it?
What about food and drink?
What about side effects and interactions?
What else do I need to know?
Here are some forms that can help you keep track of what medicines you take and when to take them. You can also keep track of how well your medicines are working. Take these with you when you talk to your doctor about new and existing medicines.
