A significant component to living well and maintaining quality living is ensuring good health. Balancing exercise, eating nutritious meals and staying hydrated helps clear the road to a healthy lifestyle and benefits to overall well-being. While managing your health on a daily basis should include as much of the aforementioned as possible, some must also incorporate medications into their routine in order to stay well. When an ailment or health issue affects everyday life, a prescription may be issued to manage symptoms and keep the condition under control.
When medication is taken as prescribed, consideration as to when, how often, dosage, with/without food and mindfulness to side effects better ensures that anticipated results will be seen. Improper use of medication, however, can lead to various medical problems, many of which are quite serious. Unfortunately, individuals who are facing memory loss, Alzheimer’s, dementia or other conditions may have a more difficult time taking their medication properly.
