Tips When Getting a Prescription

Recent surveys indicate that over half of American adults take two or more prescription and non-prescription medications, including supplements and vitamins, each day.† To help people avoid medication errors, the Federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality has developed "Quick Tips When Getting a Prescription," a card designed to help both patients and pharmacists ensure that medications are used safely and effectively.† It contains a series of questions to help patients communicate with their clinicians and pharmacists about their medication use. The card is one of a series of four "Quick Tips" cards that provide information on getting medical tests, planning for surgery and talking with your doctor.† Also available in Spanish, the cards are available free of charge and can be downloaded from the web at www.ahrq.gov/consumer/.
