- Keep a list of medications you take so you can provide an accurate medication history when you check into the hospital.
- During your stay, ask: "What's that name of the drug you're giving me? What will it do? And what adverse drug reactions should I expect?"
- Before discharge, learn about any medications you'll be taking at home.
The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists can help you keep track of your medicines.
