Taking Medication Safely

You can take steps to protect yourself from medication mistakes that can cause serious side effects, says the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. Ask your health care provider or your pharmacist if you should avoid certain foods, alcohol and other medications or activities while you are taking a newly prescribed drug. Don't take an herbal remedy or dietary supplement without consulting your health care provider.
