Rx check: Do you know what you''re taking?

When your doctor prescribes a medication, make sure you know the basics. Ask your doctor or pharmacist: 1. What are the brand and generic names of the medication? 2. Why do I need the medication? 3. How soon can I expect results? 4. When should I take the medication and for how long? 5. What are the side effects? 6. Does it interact with other medications or with foods?
