what should I ask my pharmacist?

Cover the bases

Ask your pharmacist: 1. What is the name of my
medication?
2. How do I take it?
3. What side effects does it
have?
4. Does it interact with my other
medications?
Always ask for a medication leaflet with each new prescription. Don't assume anything--educate yourself!
