Medication Updates Important
 
The end of the year is the best time to review and update your medications. If you feel that your medications aren't working as they used to or you are having side effects be sure to mention this to your provider. Always keep a list of all of your medications, as well as supplements and herbal remedies, along with your allergies and treatments with you when you go to medical appointments. Here's why this is helpful.

Improving your care:
  • Helps prevent potential interactions and aides in accurate lab results.
  • An updated and comprehensive medication list, including discontinued medications and allergies, helps with medication prior authorization(s) if needed.

Safety:

  • Toxicity levels can occur with certain medications, including over-the-counter medications and vitamins.
  • Food-medication interactions can also occur.
  • Prevent allergic reactions.
Why do we ask you to update your treatment list since we last saw you?
  • To help find treatments that work for you.
  • To prevent duplication of therapies and testing and to ensure we have the information we need to provide the best care possible.

What you can do to help improve your care:

  • Bring your medication bottles with you to medical appointments along with your lists.
  • Also, keep a list of over-the-counter products that you take.
  • Get rid of old medications not being used. Turn them in at your doctor's office or at a drop site.
  • Use pill boxes to help remind you to take your medications.
  • Know what each medication treats.
  • Update ALL of your providers on what each provider prescribes to you.
