Sometimes medications can be tricky to figure out and can be potentially dangerous if you don’t understand what is exactly prescribed to you. Here are some Dos and Don’ts that can help safely improve your health with the given drugs presented in this WebMD guide. Always take the drugs exactly as they are prescribed, and make sure all the doctors know about all the medications you take to avoid complications. In addition, any over the counter medications, vitamins, and supplements should also be reported to the doctor. Using one pharmacy to fill all the prescriptions can simplify the tracking of medications in case it is needed. Actions to avoid include changing the dose or schedule of the medication, take someone else’s prescriptions, crushing the pills without instructed to do so, taking medications past the expiration date, or store medications in too hot or too cold of an environment.
