3 Take As Directed Take As Directed Peter felt sick. He went to see the doctor. The doctor was very busy. There were a lot of people in the waiting room. The doctor asked Peter some questions about his health. He answered her. She listened to his chest and looked in his mouth. Then she talked to Peter. He tried to listen and he asked the doctor some questions but he didn t understand a lot. 1

4 The doctor wrote a prescription and told Peter how to take the medicine. Then she asked him, Do you understand? Peter didn t understand everything but he knew the doctor was busy so he said, Yes. The doctor said, Good. Come back and see me next week. After that, Peter went to the pharmacist (chemist) to get the medicine. The pharmacist gave him a box of tablets and a bottle of syrup. The pharmacist asked him, Did your doctor tell you how to take the medicine? Peter said, Yes, she did but it was a lot to remember. The pharmacist gave Peter an information page about the medicines. Peter went home with the medicines. He understood how to take the syrup. He thought he understood how to take the tablets, but he couldn t remember exactly. So, he read the label on the bottle. It read, TAKE AS DIRECTED. But what did TAKE AS DIRECTED mean? 2 3

5 Adela: Hi Darling! How are you feeling? Did you get some medicine? Peter: Hi Honey! Yeah, I m feeling a bit better... and I got some medicine. Adela: That s good. Do you know how to take it? Peter: Well, I understand how to take the syrup. The label on the box reads: Take ten millilitres twice a day before food. Do not drink alcohol with this medicine. So, I ll take ten millilitres before breakfast and before our evening meal. It also says: Warning: May make you drowsy. So I won t drive the car while I m taking this. 4 5

6 Adela: OK. What about the tablets? Peter: Well, I couldn t understand the doctor. So then I read the label. It reads TAKE AS DIRECTED. What does it mean? Adela: Show me... mmm, I don t know what TAKE AS DIRECTED means. Peter: The pharmacist gave me this information page: it s called Consumer Medicine Information. Maybe this can help? Adela: Oh, I got information like that for my antibiotics last year. Umm, it tells us about the medicine but it doesn t tell you exactly what dose you need. We ll ask the doctor. Do you have to see the doctor again? Peter: Yeah, next week. Adela: Oh, but you need to start taking the medicines now. We ll have to ring the doctor and ask right now. Peter: Oh yes, that would be good! 6 7

7 Adela: OK. And next week, I ll go to the doctor with you if you like. I can help you understand and remember what the doctor says. Let s think of some questions to ask before we go. Peter: OK. Like How long do I have to take this medicine? Why don t we make a list? We can ask the doctor to write down the answers too, to help us remember. Adela: OK. I ll get some paper and a pen. Some questions to ask my doctor Why am I using this medicine? When will I start to see changes in my health? How long do I have to take this medicine? How much should I use? What should I do if I forget to take a dose? What times of the day should I use it? Do I have to finish all of the medicine, or just use it until I feel better, or keep using it for a long time? What side effects do I need to watch for? What should I do if I get a side effect? Can I drink alcohol when I m taking this medicine? Important information I need to remember: 8 9
