Audio PSA: Taking Medication Safely

Dr. Clancy: I’m Dr. Carolyn Clancy, Director of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality. Prescriptions are an important way to treat medical conditions. You need to know why you are taking a prescription, and if it could interact with other medicines, vitamins, or food. Know the name of the medicine, when to take it, and if you will need refills. If you do not understand the instructions, ask your doctor or pharmacist to help. Taking an active role in your health care is essential to keeping yourself safe and healthy.
