Know your medications
If you take medications, you play a role in your healthcare when it comes to medication safety. Keep an up-to-date list of all the medications you take and carry it with you. This list can help you and your family keep track of everything you take, this includes your pills, vitamins, and herbs. Having all your medications listed in one place helps your doctor, pharmacist, hospital, or other healthcare providers take better care of you.
