When it comes to drug therapy, patients are often at the mercy of their physicians and pharmacist. They trust that these medical professionals will give them the best possible care and advice on which drug to take.
To help you prevent overdose and negative side effects from taking place, we want to share some advice on what to do:
- One way that patients can be protected from overdosing on drugs is to make sure they have a prescription for only the amount of medication they need. Patients should never be given extra pills or told that “extra” pills are okay for them to take if they forget one day.
- This could lead to an accidental overdose or addiction in some cases. A patient can also ask their doctor if there is a generic version of the drug they are taking so that they can save money on their prescriptions while still getting treatment for their condition.
- To further save money and time for the patient, some pharmacies provide Free Prescription Delivery.
- Another way patients can avoid negative side effects is by knowing what effects might occur before starting treatment with new prescriptions. Patients can ask their healthcare professionals about any potential side effects of new drugs before taking them so that they know what symptoms may occur during treatment and how long those symptoms might last after stopping the medicines altogether.
