Manage Your Medications

Medications are an important part of your plan for improved health and wellness. At least 1 out of every 10 older adults is hospitalized because of an adverse drug reaction, and those who take many medications daily are at a higher risk.

In order for you to get the maximum benefit from your medication regimen, you must be familiar with it. The tips below can help you stay safe:

  • Be sure to take all prescription and over-the-counter medications with you to each doctor appointment.
  • A medication list such as this is a helpful tool to keep track of past and current medications to review with your doctors.
  • Know what each medication is for and when/how to take it.
