Managing Your Medicines

NAPSI)-Learning ways to manage your medicines could help protect your health.

A new brochure by the Eldercare Locator and Consumers Union, the nonprofit publisher of Consumer Reports, outlines some simple steps to help make sound health care decisions concerning prescription drugs:

• Maintain a medicine record

• Share any change in side effects with your doctor

• Keep your health care professionals informed of all the medicines you are taking

• Find out about different options to pay for your medicines.

To learn more, request the brochure "Prescription Drug Options for Older Adults: Managing Your Medicines" at Eldercare Locator at (800) 677-1116 or www.eldercare.gov.

The Eldercare Locator is a free service of the U.S. Administration on Aging and is administered by the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging.
