FDA’s Talk Before You Take program

medicineWhen our doctor prescribes us a new medicine, lots of us don’t ask the questions we should. What side effects we should be aware of? Will it react negatively with another medication I’m taking? All these things should be known before we leave the doctor’s office so there are no bad reactions in the future. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently launched a “Talk Before You Take” campaign advising people what questions they should ask their doctor. Print this list and have it handy the next time you visit the doctor to make sure you know everything you need to!
