Poison Prevention Tips for Seniors

 

Toll Free Poison Hotline: 1-800-222-1222

Medication is the cause of nearly half of all poisonings in seniors. Take these precautions whenever taking or giving medications with your mom or dad:

  • Make sure you understand how to use and store your medications. If you have questions, ask your pharmacist.
  • Make a list of all prescription and over-the-counter medications you take. Include the dosages. Share this with all of your doctors.
  • Always use the same pharmacy to fill your prescriptions.
  • Each time you get a prescription filled, double-check it to make sure you received the correct medication and dose.
  • Keep your medications in their original containers.
  • Don't take medications in the dark.
  • Try to follow a regular schedule for taking medications.
  • Read labels carefully.
  • Never take someone else's medication.
  • Check with your doctor or pharmacist before taking vitamins or herbal products.
