Having to take regular medicines may be new for you. You may need to get into new habits or schedules for taking your pills at the same time each day.
Here are guidelines to follow when taking medicines:
Call your doctor if you have severe or unusual reactions to your medicine(s).
Bring all of your medicines or a list of them to your doctor visits or to the hospital. This includes:
Always show the medicines or list to your doctor, surgeon, nurse, dentist or anesthesiologist (if you are having surgery). It is a good idea to always carry a current list in your wallet or purse.
