5. When possible use natural remedies
Getting proper exercise, eating healthy, and taking vitamins are always the best options to use in conjunction with taking your regular medications. In some cases, you may find that medicines are not needed and you can rely on natural supplements.
6. When possible, use one drug store for all prescribed medications
This will help to avoid the possibility of bad drug interactions.
7. Ask questions about any new medications
If your doctor recommends a new medication, then be sure to find out exactly what it will treat and determine if it is really necessary that you take it in the first place. If a medicine is making you sick, then ask your physician about taking an alternative treatment option.
If you still feel like you are overmedicated even after following all of these steps, then talk to a different medical professional immediately because you might be able to stop taking some of your medicines, especially if you are taking certain pills in order to treat the side effects from other drugs.
However, if you still have any additional questions concerning medicines that you are currently taking, concerns about potential drug reactions, or if you would like to be referred to a person who can effectively evaluate all of your medications, then please call the Addiction Help Center hotline toll-free at 1-877-259-5635, or your country’s addiction help line. Counselors are always available around the clock to answer all of your questions.
