Prescription medications can help us live longer and healthier lives, but any medication has the potential to do harm. Many of us also take over-the-counter medications, supplements, and eat different kinds of food. All of this may cause potential confusion or complications. Learn more about how to take your medications safely, ways to make it easier to remember to take medications, and examples with how to organize and keep track of them.
Additionally, learn about what foods may interact with your medications, recommendations for how to renew medications on the same schedule, save money, expiration dates, and proper disposal of medications. We will also share what are 5 groups of medications to avoid when possible, how your local health care provider and pharmacist can provide guidance and other resources to help you and your loved ones with medication safety–such an important part of our lives.
