Drug Interactions: Keep a List of All Medications You Take

I am on several medications that I take daily for a variety of health problems. I am on so many medications off and on that it is sometimes hard to remember them all. One day, I was visiting a new specialist, and I forgot to write down one of my current medications on the new patient form. I was given a prescription, and just after he wrote it I remembered the medication I forgot and told him. He said it was a good thing I remembered when I did, because the new prescription he was going to give me would have interacted with it. I now keep a current list of all medications I am on that I update every time there is a change. I created this blog to encourage others to make lists of their own to keep handy, because some medication interactions can be deadly.
