If you abruptly stop your medication you could put your health at risk for serious side effects—medication-related or otherwise. And if you hear about a medication recall but aren’t sure if your meds are affected, check the FDA Enforcement Report, a weekly post from the FDA of all recalled medications. Always follow your doctor’s and pharmacist’s directions, research your medication and take some extra precautions to ensure your safety and the safety of those around you. Troy Taylor is a registered pharmacist in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

Acknowledge that medication safety is a topic and an understanding of the area will affect how you perform the following tasks: Use generic names where appropriate Tailor your prescribing for each patient Learn and practise thorough medication history taking Know which medications are high-risk and take precautions. Medication Safety Methods Chapter Exam Instructions. Choose your answers to the questions and click ‘Next’ to see the next set of questions. You can skip questions if you.

That means you may not ask all employees to disclose any medications they take. Instead, you need to determine the job positions for which prescription-related questions would be job-related and consistent with business necessity. Typically, those will be safety-sensitive positions, such as drivers, police officers, and heavy equipment operators. That’s something that a pharmacist can tell you. Equally important, especially for parents, is to know what to do if some of the dose of medication didn’t get swallowed.

Or if the patient vomited soon after taking a dose. Ask the pharmacist what to do, because the answer is different depending on the medication. A: Call your doctor or pharmacist if you are concerned about an interaction.

Do not stop taking any prescribed medication without your doctor’s approval. Do not stop taking any prescribed. This may seem a strange question, but the reality is that over 50% of medication prescribed is either taken incorrectly or not at all.

If you don’t take your high blood pressure medication, you have a higher chance of having a heart attack or damaging your kidneys. Incorporating various types of “probing questions” into the patient interview may help trigger the patient’s memory on what medications they are currently taking. Here are some suggestions: Use both open-ended questions (e.g., “What do you take for your high cholesterol?”) and closed-ended questions (e.g, “Do you take medication for your high cholesterol?”) during the interview.

  • I looked at your site and didn’t see any readily available alternatives to this drug. I am so dizzy I can’t stand up or function at all. I took myself off of massive doses of medications. I’m okay but am having problems with sleeping. These prescribers failed me. They were totally irresponsible so I quit the mental harm system about six months ago. I have replaced the drugs with natural supplements. My problem now is sleeping. What are the alternatives that are available without a prescription and are actually healthy for you? I want to add…the American Psychiatric System sucks!

  • Cough medicine like dextromethorphan helps dry cough but if you take more than the recommended dose it becomes a dissociative drug and if you take enough of it you can have an out of body experience while tripping. You can mix grapefruit juice with this and it infact gives more visuals, the visuals look like LSD visuals.

  • Wait this video was to short… Could you use this to get drunk? Make your self a cheepr date??? So to speak how or if it can how can this apply more then just meds

  • It takes at least an hour and for my pharmacy (2-3 days) whether or not they have to count anything. For instance, insulin. Rather than just entering in the prescription, pulling it out of the fridge and throwing a label on it, they delay excessively! This is even when a patient is paying cash only. Many pharmacies are just working in snail mode but ok.

  • let’s imagine that someone has a terible earache and has to take painkillers to be even able to sleep, can you drink grapefruit juice to decrease the amount fo drugs taken?

  • Soooo… why don’t they just give you an amount to grapefruit juice to drink with the medicine, change the dose to be less. Wouldn’t this make medicine less expensive?

  • This video is so interesting to watch. Thanks you for your explanation. I am experiencing olanzapine withdrawal symptoms. I was on no medication for 8 years and I started having trouble sleeping and decided to use olanzapine (it had been prescribed to me before to sleep but never took it because I wanted to come off the medication). So when I tapered off olanzapine slowly, I got depressed and ended up with suicidal thoughts (and I hadn’t had any of these symptoms in 8 years. I only used it to sleep and I ended up depressed. Now I understand why. Thanks for answering all these questions.

    This is my story https://youtu.be/PF6W133diWI and I am on quetiapin now

  • Grapefruits are great for keeping estradiol valerate doses high in the body for transsexuals who need more potent effects of estrogen while forced to take subpar doses.

  • Very bad advice on disposing medications they should only be taken back to the specific sharp and medicine disposal center. This video is NOT responsible.

  • Seroquel if u take small dosages for sleep (50mg max) it’s not gonna hurt you. But when i hear doctors are prescribing 300mg and 600mg I feel really sorry for the patients cause it’s gonna destroy them.

  • Thank you so much for this video! I am taking medication for my acne and I am supposed to be taking it for two consecutive months but obese spent three weeks without the second months amount because I had no idea of how to get a refill. Thanks again!
