It is helpful to try and form good habits when taking your medicine. Taking the right dose at the right time will mean the medicine has the best chance of improving your health.
You may find it difficult initially to get into the habit of taking your medicine, so the following tips may help you:
If you’re worried about side effects, or think you may be having a side effect from your medicine, then you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist. They will offer you advice and support.
You should also let the manufacturer of your medicine know. All pharmaceutical companies, such as Teva, monitor side effects from their medications. If you or someone you know is having a side effect caused by a Teva medicine, contact Teva Canada’s pharmacovigilance department immediately:
If you are worried about the cost of taking your medicine, speak to your pharmacist about the options available to you. Many times there are alternatives that work just as well but at a lower cost.
Doctor/Nurse Practitioner – the doctor or nurse practitioner that has prescribed your medicine can help to answer many of your questions about your health and medication.
Pharmacist – Your pharmacist can offer you advice on your health and are specially trained to answer your questions about your medication.
Information sheet – When your pharmacist gives you a new medication, he/she will review the medication with you and give you an information sheet. This information sheet provides you with a large amount of information about the medication. If you have any questions it is important that you talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
