Your Medication List
In order to provide you the best care possible, your healthcare team needs to consider your whole health picture. In addition to understanding your physical symptoms, it is important to know what medications you are taking and why. This includes prescription and over-the-counter, non-prescription medications such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen as well as vitamins, minerals, supplements and natural remedies.
Always keep your medication list on hand - in your wallet or your purse or upload it to your phone, so you have it with you at all your medical appointments, trips to the pharmacy or to the hospital, especially in case of emergencies.

“Keeping an up-to-date medication list can save precious time during an emergency and could help save your life. It provides your healthcare team with vital information about the medications you are already taking. At our hospitals, our healthcare team uses your medication list as a starting point for the Best Possible Medication History (BPMH) to prevent medication discrepancies and address any potentially dangerous drug interactions.”
