Medications have become an important part of life for many of us. Some of these are simple things like vitamins, herbal supplements, and over-the counter medications. Others are prescriptions given only by a doctor.
Every medication has side effects. Some are mild like an upset stomach. Some, however, can be deadly. A doctor has the obligation to know the side effects of the medications she prescribes. Because each person is different, the doctor has to ask about allergies and adverse reactions to other drugs, and to know the other medications and supplements the patient is taking. The and only then can the doctor determine if the medication is safe for the patient.
