When Your Doctor Prescribes a Drug for You:
Powerful Patients always find about specific risk factors that go along with a new diagnosis. For other disease or conditionns, find out if risk factors can be modified to lower the chance of a repeat problem or to lessen the serverity of an existing problem.
For example - if you have a history of diabetes in your family and you are overweight, losing weight is one of those risk factors that can change that can actually decrease your risk of diabetes.
Powerful Patients always ask if there is nutritional support that may be required if a new prescription is being considered. If patients begin to feel tired after starting on the high cholesterol medicines, the supplementation with co-Q may help restore quality of life.
Powerful Patients always ask what the goals of any existing or new treatment are, and how long it should take to reach them. Ask if there are any lifestyle changes you can try to make that might help the medicine work harder for you.
Powerful Patients know the goals and how to lower risk and call their doctor if goals are not achieved.
Powerful Patients protect themselves by asking that the prescription include both the name of the drug and the disorder for which the drug is taken. They also read the label and auxiliary labels carefully!!!
It is time well spent. If these are missing, ask the pharmacist to call teh doctor.
