June is National Safety month! Is there a way to use opioid painkillers safely? In select, individual cases, opioids may be one part of an effective pain management plan. Even then, patients should be monitored closely and treat over-the-counter and prescription drugs with caution: 1) Ask your doctor, nurse or pharmacist if you have questions about medicine 2) Know the dose that is right for you 3) Read and follow instructions every time 4) Never take multiple medicines with the same active ingredient unless directed by a doctor 5) Put over-the-counter and prescription medicines up and away and out of sight.
