When A Drug Is Recommended

Next » « Previous


Before agreeing to take any drug, consider the pros and cons, as well as the alternatives. Keep in mind that all drugs have risks - including over-the-counter drugs. The longer a drug has been on the market, the more that is known about its effect (both good and bad).

Take each drug as directed, when you are supposed to, and for as long as you are supposed to. 

Do not stop taking a drug just because you are feeling better.

For drugs that you take on a long term basis, talk to your doctor about finding out if a lesser dose will accomplish the purpose.

Learn how to safely store drugs and to dispose of unused drugs.

For more information about drugs, see the documents in “To Learn More.”
