Write it down: Just like an in-person visit, you will want to write down any vital information to make the best use of your time with the prescriber.
- Make a list of medications you currently take, including over-the-counter, prescription, or recreational drugs.
- Write down any symptoms, questions, or concerns you want to discuss during the appointment so you do not forget them.
- Keep a pen and paper handy to take notes about what your prescriber says during the call.
Be honest while answering questions: Your prescriber needs to know the truth to be able to treat you properly and safely. This includes topics such as:
- Drug use
- Past surgeries
- Medications and supplements
