Radiocast: Prescriptions - Play it Safe

Debra: This is Healthcare 411: Information for better health. October is Talk about Prescriptions Month, and a good opportunity to check up on your medications. Do you know what you’ve prescribed and how to take your medications safely? If you need a cheat sheet, a tool from AHRQ can help. Dr. Sunil Kripalani explains:

Dr. Kripalani: Well, the pill card is designed for people who have a hard time keeping track of their medications. You can hang it on the refrigerator to keep track of your medicines, keep it where you store your medications, and take it with you to your doctor’s office. All of these things can help you easily remember your medications on a daily basis.

Debra: To access the template to create the pill card on your home computer, go to ahrq.gov/qual/pillcard/pillcard.htm. Healthcare 411 is produced by AHRQ, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. I’m Debra James for Healthcare 411.
