Check Your Medicines – Tips for Using Medicines Safely

- Make sure your medicine is what the doctor ordered.
- Ask how to use the medicine correctly.
- Ask about possible side effects.
What happens when you take a lot of pills?
If you’ve taken more than the recommended amount of a drug or enough to have a harmful effect on your body’s functions, you have overdosed. An overdose can lead to serious medical complications, including death.
What happens if you take medication you don’t need?
That will make your infection harder to control. You might face serious complications. If you don’t take your blood pressure pills for your heart as prescribed, it could raise your chances of a heart attack, a stroke, kidney failure, or other complications. Even OTC drugs can be dangerous to skip.
Is it better to give antibiotics early or late?
Taking your antibiotics as directed by your doctor is important for clearing your bacterial infection. This includes making sure to take all doses as scheduled. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember.
What happens if you miss your blood pressure medicine for 1 days?
If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take two doses to make up for the dose you missed.
Does coughing up phlegm mean you’re getting better?
Coughing and blowing your nose are the best ways to help mucus fight the good fight. “Coughing is good,” Dr. Boucher says. “When you cough up mucus when you are sick, you are essentially clearing the bad guys—viruses or bacteria—from your body.”
