It is essential that anyone who regularly takes certain medications keep track of each of these drugs and all their associated information. The FDA strongly recommends making a list all medications – including vitamins, dietary supplements, herbals and over-the-counter medications – and showing it to your doctor, pharmacist and hospital attendant at every visit. Staying vigilant about your medication will help your health care professionals know what they can prescribe you and keep them alert for any negative side effects of medicinal interaction.
