The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Office of Women’s Health released Saturday a new public service announcement (PSA) titled, “Use Medicines Wisely,” to help raise awareness about safe medication use.
Millions of people benefit from FDA approved medications and are living longer productive lives. However, when medications are used incorrectly, they can cause serious injuries, even death. Many of these injuries can be prevented.
This pocket-size brochure can be used to keep track of prescription and over-the-counter medicines like vitamins and pain relievers. The website also has easy-to-read fact sheets and links to other FDA resources on safe medication use.
October is “Talk about Prescriptions Month.” Throughout the month, the public is encouraged to talk to their health care providers about the right way to use their medications.
