Following Medication Instructions

Your doctor or pharmacist will advise you on when to take your medication. Some medications need to be taken with a meal, or at bedtime, to avoid side effects. If you have any problem with taking your medications as instructed, discuss the problem with your doctor to find a solution.

If you have trouble remembering if and when you took your medication, there are containers that may aid with your scheduling. Check with your pharmacist for recommendations.
