Talking with Your Doctor

Frequently Asked Questions

7. What types of medications does my doctor need to know that I am taking?

Your doctor needs to know about all the medications you take, even if you do not take them all the time. These medications include prescription drugs, over-the-counter (non-prescription) drugs, vitamins, herbal remedies or supplements, laxatives, and eye drops. Make sure your doctor knows how much you take and how often you take each medication.
