To receive the best care possible, you should inform your clinician honestly about:
- Symptoms you have before and after treatment
- Possible side effects you may be experiencing
- Other medical conditions you may have
- Other medications you are taking
While most medications are relatively safe, potentially life-threatening complications may happen when the medications are taken incorrectly. Your clinician will evaluate the risks for each prescription to ensure you are as safe as possible. If there is a risk for any potentially serious complications, your clinician will outline these to you. Ensure that if you experience any of these issues, you contact your clinician immediately to ensure your safety.
Some medications can have severe consequences if stopped abruptly. Please continue to take your medications only as instructed and do not stop or adjust your dosage without consulting with your clinician.
If you are having difficulties remembering to take your medications correctly or affording your medications, please let your clinician know. There are many resources to help patients in these areas.
