What You Need to Know About Your Prescription

Your provider may give you a prescription for medication. Be sure and let your provider know about any medications you get from another provider. Also mention medications you buy on your own including non-prescription or herbal products.

Carefully read the drug information the pharmacy will give you when you fill your prescription. It will explain what your medicine is for and possible side effects. If you do not understand how to take your medicine or why you should take it, ask to speak to the pharmacist.
