Pharmaceutical Instructions Are A Must- Follow
Wednesday, 30 November 2011 15:58

When it comes to following pharmaceutical instructions, it is essential that you listen to both your doctor and your pharmacist. Prescription medications need to be taken exactly the way they are supposed to be, even if they are inconvenient or difficult to remember. Your pharmacist should be aware of every medication that you are taking to make sure that the medications work together and not against each other. Most pharmacists double and triple check a prescription before giving it to the patient. If you do not explicitly follow the pharmacist's directions, you are putting yourself in danger.

Taking the wrong dosage or combination of medications can lead to illness or even death. Hundreds of thousands of people die every year from taking medicine incorrectly or, even worse, not taking prescribed medication at all. Write down what your doctor says about when and how you should take your medication. This will keep you from making what could be a tragic mistake. Make sure to ask questions of your doctor, pharmacist, or both if there are things about your medication you do not understand. You should also ask about any side effects the medication might cause.

Complying with pharmaceutical instructions is the best way to manage an illness or disease. The easiest way to make this happen is to be sure to fill all of your prescriptions at the same pharmacy. This way you will have one pharmacist dealing with your various medications and there is less margin for error than if you were to have your prescriptions filled at multiple pharmacies.
