How to Manage Multiple Prescription Medications

If you need to take multiple prescription medications in order to maintain your health you may find yourself getting confused. You will need to know what each medicine was prescribed for, who wrote the prescription, how you need to take the medication and much more. Managing multiple prescription medications can be an overwhelming experience. However there are some ways that you can keep track of all this information.

The first thing you will need to do is make a list of all the prescription medications that you are taking. You will need to know the name of the product, how often you need to take it and if it is in a tablet or liquid form. If you make a note of the appearance of each medication you will not get them mixed up in the future. You will also need to know if the product is a generic version of a brand name medication. It would be wise to list your doctor's information in case you lose a prescription. Make changes to the list as your medications change.

Another aspect you should include in your list is what side effects each drug has the potential to cause. Some side effects are very serious. Examples of these side effects are allergic reactions and chest pains. If you experience a side effect that is deemed to be dangerous you will need to contact your doctor straight away.

If you keep good records you will be able to monitor and manage your prescription medications easily. The list will be very useful if you are having a reaction to different medicines. You will be able to tell the doctor what side effect you experienced and he or she may provide an alternative medication.
