Importance of taking your medications

Importance of taking your medications:

There are four rights of medications, which all of these are important to be aware of.

  1. The right dose
  2. The right time
  3. The right way
  4. The right frequency

If you do not use the four rights it could lead to your health getting worse or possibly being hospitalized, cause disease, or even death. For overall long term health and well being you should be taking medications that are prescribed or recommended by your physician only. This will improve your health status and prevent/reduce your further risk of medical issues or side effects. Taking your medication correctly will help your doctor accurately diagnosis and treat any underlying medical conditions. It is important to bring any medications including over the counter supplements to all of your medical office visits. This will allow all physicians to prevent any drug interactions and notify them of current medication changes.
