Managing Medication



Use Medication Wisely.  
  • Ask your pharmacist or primary health care provider about possible side effects of prescription or over-the-counter medication.
  • Read directions carefully so you're aware of potential reactions with other medications.
  • If your medication causes dizziness or sleepiness, adjust your activities so you aren't at risk of falling.
  • Don't mix alcohol and medications. Alone or in combination with drugs, alcohol can cause falls.
