1. Where can I find information about my medications that I can read and refer back to if needed?

  • Check with your pharmacist.
  • Read the package inserts and labeling. If you don’t understand something or become concerned once you read the label, ask your pharmacist or prescribing physician to answer your questions.
  • Pharmaceutical manufacturers often maintain a Web site or produce patient education materials you can obtain from your physician or nurse.
  • Join Allergy & Asthma Network Mothers of Asthmatics (AANMA)! [1] As a member, you’ll receive AANMA’s monthly award-winning publications brimming with practical, consumer-friendly news about medications, devices, products, services, you name it!
  • Go to your library to use the BIG book – Physician’s Desk Reference (PDR), PDR for Nutritional Supplements, or PDR for Herbal Medicines.
  • Go to PDR Health [2], the U.S. Food and Drug Administration [3], or The National Library of Medicine’s MedlinePlus [4].
  • Use your Internet browser to search for information about the medication by name.
