If you've gone to your doctor because you don't feel well, the doctor might decide a medicine will help and will write a prescription. Be sure you:
- Tell your doctor or nurse about all the medicines you take whenever a new drug is prescribed.
- Remind your doctor or nurse about your allergies and any problems you have had with medicines, such as rashes, indigestion, dizziness, or mood changes.
- Understand how to take the medicine before you start using it. Ask questions. It might help to write down the answers.
