There is no better advice for patients than to stay well informed!
Learn about your condition, crack the secret behind a medical abbreviation, learn more about your new prescription, its correct usage and – by all means – learn about its side effects as well.
To help you stay informed, Los Angeles Health Directory provides a quick medical abbreviation and medical dictionary lookup (below) as well as access to prescription medication research.
The best place to learn about prescription medication is www.Drugs.com
- You can get the complete info about your new prescription: learn the brand and generic names; indications, counter-indications, side effects and the best way to take your new prescription.
- Got pills you can’t identify? The pill identifier will help! (Considering the cost of prescriptions, it’s better to know what you’re about to throw out…)
- If you’re worried whether your new prescription can be safely taken with those you’re already taking, the drug interactions checker is a great solution.
