More Tips for New Jersey Seniors and Medications

The rule when buying from Internet pharmacies is not to purchase anything:

  • Without a proper medical examination
  • Stay away from medications that are not FDA-approved 
  • Avoid sites that do not require a written prescription
  • Resist claims of “new cures” or “amazing results”

How can you reduce the likelihood of adverse interactions? You can start by following these practices:

• Always read the label
• Follow directions exactly
• Drink a full glass of water and do not lie down for 30 minutes after taking medication
• Take medication in a well-lit room
• Only take medications that are prescribed for you
• Look for single ingredient products
• Do not take over-the-counter drugs without first consulting with your physician or pharmacist
• Discard any expired medications
• Keep a record of all prescription, over-the-counter drugs, herbs and vitamins
• Use one pharmacy
• Contact your primary care provider or pharmacist if you have any problems with your medicines

Many seniors not only are likely to take different medications but also see a variety of specialists who may prescribe medications without a full knowledge of what else they are taking. This can put your at further risk of taking multiple medications that may interact adversely. As a result, consider discussing your medication use with a geriatric specialist or a pharmacist.
