  • Reading medicine labels and following the directions. Don't take medications prescribed for someone else.
  • Taking extra caution when giving medicines to children.
  • Asking questions. If you don't know the answers to these questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

    • What are the common problems to watch out for?
    • What should I do if they occur?
    • When should I stop this medicine?
