A specific list of current medicines that you take, both prescription and non prescription can prove invaluable in case of an emergency or helpful for a routine Dr. visit while you are away from home.  List your prescription medicines first, then over-the-counter medicines, and finally any nutritional supplements that you take.  Include the strength, the frequency of dosage and the name and phone number of the Doctor who prescribed the medicine.  As a matter of your patient health know the active ingredient. This is what makes the drug work.  Keep this with your important documents and keep it up-to-date.
