Talking with Your Doctor

Frequently Asked Questions

15. If, after my doctor visit, I have questions about medications prescribed for me, is there someone I can talk to besides my doctor?

Yes. Your pharmacist can help answer your questions about medications, including what the label on the medicine bottle means and what are common side effects. It may be helpful to get all your prescriptions from the same pharmacy so they have a complete record of what you are taking. Your pharmacist can check to see if there are any medications that should not be taken together.
