Medicine Cabinet Must-Haves
Remember that any medication that you or your family may take, including OTC drugs, prescription drugs and herbal or natural remedies, can have side effects. In addition, OTC drugs, prescription drugs and herbal remedies can interact with each other with negative consequences. Make sure that you discuss all of the medications that you and your family are taking with your physician to protect your health.
In addition, if you are treating a family member for a specific illness and that illness persists, it might be a good time to call your physician to see if you need to make an appointment for a physical examination.
