The change in seasons often leads to an increase in germs and more frequent sickness. While visiting the doctor is an essential part of maintaining your health, it’s important to make sure you receive the right prescriptions.

 

Stay Healthy

 

The number one way to avoid prescription error is by taking practical steps towards staying healthy throughout the season. Wash your hands with hot water regularly, take time to relax, spend time outside, exercise, maintain a healthy diet, and get enough sleep. Being intentional about these simple tasks will transform the way your body responds to germs this season.

 

How to Get the Right Prescription

 

A prescription isn’t any good if it isn’t the right one for your condition. To ensure you receive the proper medication from the doctor, consider the following:

 

  • Make the doctor aware of any allergies or side affects you’ve experienced from certain medications in the past.

 

  • Disclose all information about medicines and supplements you currently take.

 

  • Ask questions! Don’t hesitate to drill the doctor about each prescription and how it will affect your body and condition

 

  • Learn the names of the prescriptions and do your own research.

 

Developing an inquisitive attitude is the best way to make sure you go home with the right medicine after a visit to the doctor. It’s challenging to know exactly what they are giving you, but taking time to investigate can save you from having to press charges later in a case of prescription error.
