Is understanding prescription labels important?

Your doctor in New York has just given you a new prescription to help you fight off discomforting symptoms that you have been experiencing for quite some time. Relieved, you just start taking the new medication without a second thought to potential side effects. However, not understanding the prescription you are taking could put you at risk of severe injury if you begin taking the drug without a proper understanding of its use and side effects. 

When you go to your pharmacy to pick up your medication, do not hesitate to ask your pharmacist questions about the drug. Understand the basics such as how much to take, what time of day, how often to repeat dosages and whether or not it should be taken with other things like food, beverages or even other drugs. According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, there are several critical parts of the label that you should read. These sections will provide detailed information including various warnings, designated uses and a list of ingredients and instructions for how to take the drug properly.  

Avoiding the mistake of taking the drug the wrong way can be achieved by simply asking your pharmacist questions about what interactions to watch for, what activities or food you should abstain from while taking the drug, and how long you should be taking the drug for. If you are in a group considered to be "at-risk," it is imperative that you confirm with your doctor that the drug is safe to take. "At-risk" groups include people who are elderly, pregnant, breastfeeding or taking other drugs.
