FORGOT YOUR DETAILS?

Have Your Medications Reviewed

It’s important to review your medications with your pharmacist or doctor at least once a year. For each of your prescriptions, over-the-counter-medications, vitamins, and supplements, discuss:

  • What is the medication used for?
  • Will it cause dizziness or drowsiness as side effects?
  • Will it cause blurred or double vision?
  • What should I do if I have side effects?
  • Should I avoid alcohol or other foods and beverages?

Suggestions

  • Be aware that medications that relax you, help you sleep, or improve your mood can increase the risk of falling.
  • Always follow the instructions and doses when taking medications.
  • Use only one pharmacy to fill your prescriptions.
  • Keep a current medication list in your wallet and at home.
  • Do not share prescription medications.
  • Return expired medications to your pharmacist.
  • Ask your pharmacist about pill-packs.
