Os adjunto la transcripción. Thanks!!
Hello, today we’re going to learn how to find out about what medications the patient is taking, including dosage and how often they are taking them e.g. once-a-day, twice-a-day, etc.
This is a good point to find out if the patient has any allergies.
To find out about a patient’s drug history, doctors could ask:
- Are you taking any medication or any tablets at the moment? Or
- Are you currently on any medication or drugs?
- What tablets do you take?
- What are the names of the tablets?
- How many times a day do you take it? or When do you take your tablets? – Once-a-day? Twice-a-day? Before your meals? With your main meals? After meals? Before breakfast? When you go to bed?
- How long have you been on it?
- What is the dosage?
- What is it prescribed for?
- Do you always remember to take it?
- Are you taking anything that your general practitioner has not prescribed?
- Do you take any homeopathic medication?
- Do you use any over-the-counter remedies or herbal medicines?
- Do you know if you are allergic to any drug?
- Do you get any side effects?
- What symptoms do you get after taking it?
That’s all for today. Thanks for your attention.
