How Do I Take Medication?

One of my slogans is “The right medication at the right dose.”   When starting someone on a medication, I tell them I’m not looking for them to say, “Doctor I think it is helping some.”

What I’m looking for is “This medication is great! It has made my life better and it’s not causing any significant side effects.”

Essential to finding the right medication is knowing HOW TO TAKE your meds.  You need to take enough, but not too much! How much is that?  I don’t know.  Each person has to find the dose for him/her that achieves the goal of remission.  Remission = completely back to normal functioning.  Before you decide a certain medication "doesn’t work" or "makes me sick," make sure you’re taking the right dose at the right time and in the right way.

I will regularly add "How to take …" to this category.  Use the comment section below to tell us medications you would like a "How to take…" for.
