What to ask when your doctor prescribes a drug

Polypharmacy (taking 5 or more drugs) can be a problem more often for older adults. Contributing factors include complex healthcare systems where patients see many different doctors and may have prescriptions filled at more than one pharmacy, age, and when medication is prescribed to treat the side effects of the drugs that patients are on.

Before you begin taking a new medication you should ask your physician the following:

Is there anything I can do other than taking medication to treat this?

Can we together review the medications that I currently take to see if there may be any drug interactions?

How real is the benefit of the drug? i.e - % efficacy

What are the side effects?

Is this a "lifer" drug?

What are the studies around the long term effects of taking the drug?

How much experience do you have prescribing this drug?

Can I take an older version of the drug that is equally effective but will cost less?

WHY CARE WEAVERS

With nursing as our background, and a passion for helping the elderly, we noticed where the in house advocates can make patients feel less. Less comfortable with treatment options, less knowledge about alternatives provided outside of that facility, and over all less financially attainable for the patients all together. This started us on the path of independent advocacy.

As independent advocates we can work with you to help you fully understand your diagnosis and treatment options as well as any potential risks with those treatments. This allows you to make informed decisions on your health faster, and keep a cool collected head in the face of crisis.

We also serve as grief advocates, helping you find the light in life that may be hidden by the pain of a sick or passed loved one. This service allows us to not only provide support for the ill but also for their families to ensure everything goes smoothly at the time of passing, and help them get back to remembering the good times faster. We love helping families in this time of need because it can be over whelming and confusing on what to do first.

Serving the Charlotte area for patient advocacy brings our community closer together through love and support even in this big metropolitan place. Let us be the love you are looking for with your medical care!
