I am worried that my prescription medicine may interact with some other prescription medications or herbal supplements that I am taking. How do I find out if it is safe to continue taking the prior medications/supplements?

Tell all of your healthcare providers about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Know the medicines you take. Keep a list of them and show each of your healthcare providers. There may also be information provided with your prescription medicine that will tell you what you can and cannot take with your new medicine. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if there are any concerns with taking other medicines or products with your new medicine.

I have difficulty swallowing my tablets/capsules. Can I crush my tablets or open my capsules and sprinkle them on food/drink?

Crushing a tablet or emptying a capsule can change the way your medicine works and can also affect the safety and effectiveness of the medicine. If you are having difficulties swallowing your tablets/capsules you should discuss this with your doctor or pharmacist.

My friend suffers from the same condition as I do, can I give her some of my medication?

Never give another person medicine that has been prescribed for you. It may harm them, even if their symptoms are the same as yours.  

How do I dispose of any medication that I no longer need?
