Questions to Ask About Pain Medication

Here are questions to ask your doctor before taking prescription pain medication:

  • Is there an equivalent generic available, and what is the dosage?

  • How should I take it? (For example, some medicines should be taken with food.)

  • What are the side effects, and how will I know if a side effect is beginning?

  • Could I try to prevent a side effect?

  • Here is a list of all the medications I'm taking already -- will there be any harmful interactions?

  • Should I stop taking my over-the-counter medicines or herbs?

  • What should I do if the medication doesn't work? Take more? Stop taking it?

  • Should I take this all the time, or just when needed?

  • Can I abruptly stop taking the medication?
