Your medication plan

A central management to monitor medicine use is important including prescribed medication, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal and alternative medicines.

Your pharmacist can also provide a print out of your prescribed medicines and the times they need to be taken to help with managing your medicines. It is important that medication is taken as prescribed.  This includes taking it on the right day, at the right time, and with or without food, as directed.

If you are a carer or family member it is a good idea for you to go through this with the patient to make sure they have understood this information. Make sure the patient understands that they must take medication exactly as their medical team or pharmacist has advised.

There are alternative therapies on offer and it is your choice, such as naturopathy, immune therapy, homeopathy, Chinese herbs and megavitamins. Complementary therapies include relaxation, talking therapies, meditation, visualisation, acupuncture, aromatherapy, reflexology, music therapy, art therapy and massage.

Your medical team needs to know exactly what your medication plan is. Some therapies may not be recommended during your treatment as they interfere with your treatment and/or worsen side-effects.
