It is very important to know how to take the medicines, in how much quantity should be taken and other precautions that should be taken before taking medicine because if we take the medicine less than the disease will not cure or if we take more then it will affect other parts of the body also mostly lungs, liver, heart, stomach. So we should take at most care while taking medicines. Some medicines should be taken only once in a day and others may be very often like this there are several other constrains on taking medicines depending upon the severity, emergency, time, conditions etc. Whenever we suggest a medicine to others it is better to give all the instructions and also the information regarding when to take and how to repeat. It is always suggestible even if the number of medicines is less to write all the precautions, timings and frequency to use those medicines. When there are several kinds of medicines then we have to take more care regarding this.
Suppose if you are suggesting some medicines to others then you should write on a paper the information regarding the timings, name of the person, disease, frequency of usage you suggested and for what you suggested the medicine including the dosage. This helps as a patient report.
Some medicines should be taken and also works best when taken with empty stomach while the others work effectively only when taken with full stomach. Because some medicines upset the stomach if there is some food inside and creates the sensation of vomiting or motions. So we should know how to use the medicines and other precautions that we should follow before taking them.
I am suggesting some medicines those should be taken before 1 hr to the meals: penicillin, ampicillin, tetracycline, rifampicin.
Take these medicines together with or after the meals: aspirin, iron tablets, vitamin tablets and erythromycin.
