What's the best way to manage my senior health medications?

Senior home care and medications

It is SO important to check over-the-counter medication labels before buying; especially read the part 'Cautions'. This could save your life. Many of these meds contain sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, sugar or alcohol, and should NEVER be taken with certain medical conditions. Check with your senior health care physician or pharmacist before taking any medications that do not require a prescription by you doctor. And ALWAYS report to your senior care physician /emergency room/etc., any of the o-t-c meds you take on a fairly continuous basis.
