Medications

Bring all of your medications to hospital (including any natural medicines and supplements you might take) so that your hospital doctor and pharmacist can make sure the correct medicine is prepared for you.

If you are seeing your GP prior to admission they may be able to print a list of your prescribed medications for you to bring to hospital.

We need to know about any recent changes to your medicines, including:

  • new medicines
  • medicines you recently stopped
  • changes in how much or how often you use the medicine.

Tell us if you have had a bad reaction to one of your medicines in the past or if you do not understand why you are taking it.
