Question check-list

If you have MS, or if you or a loved one have been recently diagnosed, you can help manage your condition by asking smart questions.

About my medications
Why have I been prescribed this medication? What does it do, and can I expect any side effects?
How many times each day should I take this medication? At what time? And should I take food or drink with it?
Are there any foods and other medications I should not combine with this medication? Will this medication interact with any vitamins and/or herbal products? Can I drink alcohol while taking this medication?
Is it safe to drive while I’m taking this medication?
What should I do if I forget to take my medication?

About my tests
What kind of tests will I have?
What do you expect to find out from these tests?
When will I know the results?
Should I do anything special to prepare for tests?
Will these tests have risks or side effects?
Will I need more tests later?

Remember that understanding your doctor's answers is the key to good communication.
