Question:

Do I need to bring my regular medication and how will I receive them when in the hospital?

Answer:

Tell your care team about any and all medications that you are taking, including prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, and any herbal, vitamin, or nutritional supplements. Carry a list of your medications, dosages, and supplements at all times and make sure that your care team is aware of any allergies. While in the hospital, please do not take any of your medications from home without first talking with your care team. Your physician or nurse should discuss any new medications or changes in medications with you. Please feel free to ask your care team about any medications you receive.
